World War I, the Paris Peace Conference, and the Origins of Global Feminism
World history textbooks have slowly begun to integrate female nurses and munition workers into the human story of the First World War. When it comes to the peace negotiations that followed, however, women again disappear, as history lessons focus on the diplomatic wrangling of powerful statesmen. Yet, women did not simply retreat to their homes 1919. They could be found everywhere: in Paris lobbying for equal rights in the drawing rooms of the peacemakers; on the streets of Cairo and Beijing demonstrating for self-determination, and in meeting halls in Washington, D.C. demanding economic justice for women workers. Join Dr. Mona Siegel, Professor of History at California State University, Sacramento, who will present these forgotten stories of female activism and provide a framework for integrating global feminism into classroom lessons on the outcomes of the First World War. Links to active learning, document-based lesson plans and a professional development certificate will be provided.
