Nos amis étrangères: French Feminism and Foreign Women Between the Wars
Short Title: French Feminism and Foreign Women Between the Wars
Abstract: Reviewing French feminist activities, writing, and journalism during the 1930s, this article argues that frustration at home prompted French feminists to expand the purview of their activities beyond the borders of France and engage with women on an international stage. French values and republican ideals dictated the ways French women perceived and interacted with their foreign counterparts.
