Swiss women, women's rights, equal rights
PART TWO: HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVES
A methodical perusal of biographical entries in encyclopedic works such as the Schweizer Lexikon ( 1998) or the Historische Lexikon der Schweiz (HLS), now in progress, brings to light a great many Swiss women who were active in the advocacy of women's equality, but who are far too little known. Some dedicated themselves to a specific issue, others were driven by a comprehensive vision of existing inequality to be remedied. They fought on a broad front against varied forms of male dominance. They hailed from the political right, center, and left, from the working class as well as from professional and middle or upper classes.
