L’Autopromotion des femmes à la Foire internationale de Chicago (1893) : identités, représentations et structuration politique

Abstract : When British women went to Chicago, they followed the advice provided by the Americans from the Board of Lady Managers in charge of the Women’s Pavilion and from suffragists organizing the World’s Congress of Representative Women. The infighting between these two American groups exemplified the history of the women’s movement in many countries organizing to go to Chicago. Women’s representation at the Exposition can thus be read as a typology both of national histories and of international female labelling. The contention here is that the 1893 Exposition boosted the making of an international model for emancipation that was not solely that of British and American women. By re-defining the labels of “moderates” and “suffragists” before 1914, women set up their international female communities.
