An indispensable reference and research resource, International Woman Suffrage (originally Ius Suffragii) was the monthly periodical of the early twentieth-century worldwide women's movement. Its function was to inform women working for equal citizenship in one part of the world about the oppression and/or struggle against that oppression and the achievements of women elsewhere. The periodical was read by all the leading figures of the suffrage movement in more than thirty countries, who would then disseminate the most relevant information in their own national and regional journals.
This four-volume collection reprints eight years of the journal and contains source material found nowhere else that is invaluable for researchers in women's history and feminism. With a thorough introduction by the editor, the collection sets the material in its social and historical context.
