Sample text

In the 1880s and 1890s two organizations began to campaign for women’s rights: the bourgeois women’s movement which, as the Federation of German Women’s Associations (Bund Deutscher Frauenvereine, BDF) had around 12,000 members in 1894, and the Socialist Women’s Movement led by Clara Zetkin and later Luise Zietz. The relaxation of the political atmosphere following Bismarck’s fall benefited the women’s movement but it also brought the women’s question to public prominence, revealing another hornet’s nest for the Wilhelmine regime to deal with.

Caprivi was perhaps rather naive in hoping for greater party co-operation in the national interest. Party politics was polarized with the Social Democrats gaining support, the Liberals divided and the Conservatives moving further to the right, embracing aggressive nationalism and antisemitism. By 1892 Caprivi had alienated support from all sides—piecemeal social reforms and concessions to commercial interests pleased no-one—but his resignation came about following an attempt to reform the army, a parliamentary defeat and moves by others to manufacture a crisis by introducing another bill to combat ‘revolutionary tendencies’.

Clearly then, women’s horizons were limited by a discriminatory system. Working-class women were forced to take poorly paid, monotonous jobs while middle-class women were lucky if they became primary-school teachers. The professions—law, medicine, higher education—were out of reach for all but the very persistent. Most political parties paid scant attention to the position of women. Only the Social Democrats supported women’s demands for equal rights and even they failed to back up their statements with action.
