Growth Factors of the Role of Women in Public Life of Ukraine (1889 – early 20th century)
Languages of publication
The article describes the increasing role of the Ukrainian women in the political life in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in the western provinces. This was due to widespread (after 1870) and better education of girls, despite the continuing elitism of female education. Graduates of junior high education were given the opportunity to work as teachers in schools of a lower type. The spread of femaleeducation reduced the belief that girls should be prepared exclusively for the role of wives and mothers. The government was not interested in female education, hence less control conduced to greater freedom in composing the content of the curricula. Education of wider social circles resulted in gradual emancipation of women, who noticed new areas for their activity at work and on the political scene.
