Women’s Societies

NYU Press

This chapter provides glimpses of the activities of voluntary societies dedicated to promoting socialism among women. It contains three announcements gleaned from the newspapers, Di arbeter tsaytung and Di fraye arbeter shtime. The first announcement looks at a women's society established in Paterson, New Jersey, which aimed to cultivate the spirit of freedom in working women. In the second passage, the Workingwomen's Society held its first mass meeting at 165 East Broadway. Lectures were given that explained the goals and aspirations of the new society, namely, the organization of the women's trades and the achievement of political rights by struggling hand in hand with the male proletariat for the liberation of all of humanity regardless of sex. Finally, the third describes concerted efforts on the part of over 500 strikers' wives to avoid interfering in their husbands' efforts at protest.
