A meeting devoted to women who lived and worked in Warsaw during the interwar period, thus creating the history and identity of the capital, organized by Pracownia Duży Pokój, the Ethnographic Workshop Association and the Museum of Warsaw.
The interwar period was a crucial time for women in Poland. It was then that women gained new rights, including the right to vote, gained wider access to university studies and started working in professions that had so far been closed off for them. These facts are still not widely known, just as little is known about the achievements of women, including those from Warsaw, active in the interwar period in the fields of politics, science, sports, art, architecture, social activism or medicine. The lecture will provide an opportunity to learn about selected women from Warsaw who were active in various areas of social life and will look at their biographies from the perspective of the struggle for equal rights.
The broadcast of the event will be available on the Facebook profile of the Museum of Warsaw.
