Political, career-oriented and social activity of women in Poland after the First World War
Languages of publication
The First World War proved to be an important factor of social modernization, bringing a new order in public space. Among the major changes in women’s social status after the war historians enumerate: obtaining full political rights and a wide access to education, increased education- and career-oriented aspirations, increased number of working women, as well as changes in the way of life and a revolution in women’s fashion. The same scholars point out, however, the short-lived or limited nature of many changes, e. g. those in family relations. The aim of the article is therefore to discuss the major aspects of the situation of women between the two wars, particularly those areas in which the influence of the 1914-1918 war was the most distinct and long-lived.
