Women's Suffrage & National Independence in Norway

I'm so pleased to contribute my article on Norwegian suffragettes to the Celebrating Women series hosted by Oh, For the Hook of a Book! Women's suffrage in Norway is deeply entwined with its independence movement, which came to a head in 1905, thanks in many respects to the suffrage movement. Come on over to learn more about these pioneering women!

It's a great series, by the way. There have already been fascinating articles on Queen Bertrada and Hatshepsut, and more to come on topics as diverse as Hildegard of Bingen, Trojan women, the history of Wonder Woman, and the history of women's mystery writers. Lots of great stuff—click the image below for a full schedule.

  1. Wow! Congratulations, Julie! It's really nice to see that you’re contributing to Norwegian suffragettes. Women’s suffrage has indeed come a long way since then, and until now this is still being pushed towards the advancement of women empowerment.
