Abstract

This paper sketches some of the dimensions of internationalism in the women’s movement from its nineteenth century origins through twentieth century peace movements (including during and after two world wars) to more recent uses of social media to campaign across national boundaries. It describes some of the varied forms of internationalism that shaped women’s campaigns in the twentieth century, and raises the need for new historiographical approaches to enable studies of the women’s movement as a truly global phenomenon.
