Gallery 6: On The Jewish Street, 1918–1939
“A Jewish woman demands her representation, which she should be rightfully granted … Moreover, we are not concerned only with purely women’s issues: we want a decisive voice in all the issues,” wrote Paulina Appenszlak in 1928. Paulina, a prominent feminist and journalist, founded Ewa, a widely read magazine in Polish for Jewish women. In its pages, she urged women to exercise their voting rights and to run for parliament and public office. She also ran a campaign for conscious motherhood.
