Abstract

The monthly journal A N és a Társadalom (Woman and society) was launched in 1907 by two organizations, Feministák Egyesülete (Association of Feminists) and Ntisztviselk Országos Egyesülete (National Organization of Female Clerks) in Budapest. Based on archival research, this article describes the foundation of the journal in 1907, the working methods it strived to adopt, and the role editor-in-chief Róza Schwimmer played during this period. The article shows that A N és a Társadalom performed a variety of crucial functions in the Hungarian women's movement of the time, including that of being a means of informal education for its readers. KEYWORDS: feminist movement, women's journals, Hungary, women's suffrage, informal education, Róza Schwimmer Introduction A N és a Társadalom (Woman and society) was the official monthly journal of two early-twentieth-century Hungarian associations: Feministák Egyesülete (Association of Feminists) and Ntisztviselk Országos Egyesülete (National Organization of Female Clerks).1 Founded in 1904, Feministák Egyesülete maintained a close relationship with the previously founded Ntisztviselk Országos Egyesülete.
