Salondamen und Frauenzimmer
Selbstemanzipation deutsch-jüdischer Frauen in zwei Jahrhunderten
[Salonistes and Public Women. The Self-Emancipation of German-Jewish Women Over Two Centuries]
Ed. by Kotowski, Elke-Vera
Aims and Scope
This volume unites portraits of Jewish women in Brandenburg-Prussia in their path to self-emancipation in religion, culture, and society. It focuses on discussing representative figures from the realms of art, literature, politics, and society. All of the portrayed individuals were united in their struggle for the right of self-determination and social equality as women and Jews. The articles contained in this volume extend from the Enlightenment to the middle of the 20th century. They address various specific topics, including the influence of parlor culture on Berlin society, the growing role of the female voice in politics and society, and the paths blazed by these unique women in traditionally male domains.
