Download 'Gebt den Schweizerinnen ihre Geschichte!': Marthe Gosteli, by Franziska Rogger PDF

By Franziska Rogger

Ausgehend von vielfältigen Archivakten deckt Franziska Rogger auf, dass die wissenschaftliche Geschichtsschreibung an den Schweizer Universitäten den Frauenstimmrechtskampf falsch dar stellt, da sie insbesondere die dem Kampf vorangehenden Hauptakten nie eingearbeitet hat. Mit diesem mangelhaften Verfahren wurde den Schweizer Frauen ihre eigenständige Geschichte recht eigentlich unterschlagen. Die Autorin stellt die weibliche Welt in einem Längsschnitt seit dem 18. Jahrhundert dar. Gleichzeitig zeichnet sie die Entwicklung von Marthe Gosteli von der eng mit der Familie verbundenen Frau zur individuellen Persönlichkeit und engagierten Kämpferin für das Frauenstimmrecht nach. Neu ist dabei, dass die Ereignisse aus weiblichen und männlichen Augen gesehen und kommentiert werden. Ohne ideologische Sichtweise wirft sie in der Darstellung der politischen Kämpfe, die sowohl von sozialdemokratischen wie bürgerlichen Frauen einmütig durchgefochten wurden, Seitenblicke auf weitere internationale und nationale Denkweisen.
