Commemorative volume from the Dutch Vereeniging voor Vrouwenkiesrecht 1894-1919

Gedenkboek Vereniging Vrouwenkiesrecht, 25 jaar strijd

The Dutch Vereeniging voor Vrouwenkiesrecht (Association for Women’s Suffrage) was founded in 1894 by Wilhelmina Drucker (1847-1925) with the goal of securing women’s suffrage. After women won the right to vote in 1919, the organization changed its name to the Nederlandsche Vereeniging van Staatsburgeressen (Dutch Women Citizens’ Association).

This book includes articles that cover the 25-year long struggle for women’s suffrage, photographic portraits of women who held leadership positions in the organization, articles about nineteenth century women pioneers, personal memories of suffragists and a list of published texts.
