The First World War marked a crisis for the burgeoning women's movements in Europe and in the United States. The Women's Movement in Wartime is the first volume to explore the responses of the women's movements to the war in all of the major belligerent nations - Germany, Austria/Hungary, France, Britain (and its Empire), the United States and Russia. The contributors explore the impact of war on early feminist thought and activism, covering key topics including the interpretation of a specifically 'womanly' response to the war, women's relationship with the state and with the nation, the status of women's wartime service, women's role as mothers in wartime, women's suffrage, peace and the aftermath of war, and women's guilt and responsibility. Its international and interdisciplinary approach makes an original contribution to the existing scholarship, and flags up fascinating parallels between what have frequently been under-exploited or recently discovered source materials.
