The Little Entente of Women: Transnational Feminist Networks and National Politics in Interwar Europe

This volume introduces the short but rich story of the local network of Eastern European feminists, the so called „Little Entente of Women“ (LEW), which so far has attracted little attention among historians working on the region. The volume contex-tualizes the creation and activities of the LEW by providing background information about the post-World War I period, the tensions and struggles between the revisionist and antirevisionist states, and the entanglements between feminist and national goals and between nationalism and internationalism among women’s movements and feminisms at the time.
