Summary Much of the recent literature on cultural demobilisation or remobilisation after the First World War has focused on men and masculinity. By contrast, this interdisciplinary volume of essays sets out to examine the importance of women 's movements and individual female activists to the shaping of post-war Europe at the private, communal, national and transnational levels. Key themes include the commemoration of the war dead; the renegotiation of gender roles; suffrage and political rights; and women 's contribution to the establishment of new visions of peace or national revenge and regeneratio.
Contents pt. 1. Commemoration, remembering, remobilisation -- pt. 2. The renegotiation of gender roles -- pt. 3. Women's suffrage and political rights -- pt. 4. Reconstructing communities/visions of peace.
