Poetka rewolucji Anna Świrszczyńska i socjalistyczny projekt równości kobiet
The Poet of the Revolution Anna Świrszczyńska and the Socialist Project of Gender Equality
Languages of publication
The text deals with the influence that women’s movements on the one hand and organizations operating in Poland after 1945 on the other hand had on the poetry of Anna Świrszczyńska. Contrary to the established narrative developed by interpreters of this poetry after 1989, the feminist sensitivity of Świrszczyńska was not an isolated and individual phenomenon, as it grew directly from activities undertaken by women and from women’s organizations in the People’s Republic of Poland as well as during the moral and cultural transformations. Reading Świrszczyńska’s poetry in the light of socialist emancipation projects allows us also to redefine the genealogy of Polish feminism.
