Overview

With the rise of modernism, the organized women's movement in Austria-Hungary became increasingly important and feminist concerns ranging from women's legal and political rights, access to education, professional opportunities, economic independence, and sexual freedom found expression in print. Agatha Schwartz analyses the connections between the women's movements and women's writing in Austria and Hungary to explore differences between works written in Austria and those coming from Hungary, whose urban culture was younger. She provides critiques of major works of fiction and theory by Rosa Mayreder, Grete Meisel-Hess, Margit Kaffka, and Szikra, among others.
