The first International Women’s Congress, held in Paris in 1878,
was a step towards creating a transnational women's movement.
Although activists sought to improve the condition of women
internationally, they remained committed to pragmatic reform
within their own respective political systems. This photograph
was taken at a meeting of German activists during the
International Women’s Congress in Berlin in 1914.
