The German League for the Prevention of Women’s Emancipation

Antifeminism in Germany, 1912-1920

Series:

Diane J. Guido

The German League for the Prevention of Women’s Emancipation: Antifeminism in Germany, 1912-1920 presents a detailed account of the activities of the German League for the Prevention of Women’s Emancipation from its beginnings in 1912 to its dissolution in 1920. It underscores the impact of this conservative, keenly nationalist, and increasingly anti-socialist, anti-Semitic, and anti-Catholic organization as it targeted primarily the moderate bourgeois Federation of German Women’s Associations and the conservative German-Evangelical Women’s League. This book also documents motives for membership, the League’s philosophy, and the political and social activism used by the League to achieve its aims. Based on a membership list reconstructed by the author, it offers a demographic analysis of League members and officers including an evaluation of the League’s geographic distribution and the extent of women’s participation in it.
