Natalia Kobrynska: A Formulator of Feminism

Description: CIUS Seminar Audio Part 1 and 2.

As a participant in the conference on the status of women in eastern Europe, Dr. Martha Bohachevsky-Chomiak gave an unscheduled Institute seminar on "Natalia Kobrynska: A Formulator of Feminism." The seminar took place on October 26, 1978.

Although Natalia Kobrynska is well known as a turn-of-the-centttry author of short stories, her role in the women’s emancipation movement is also significant. The speaker first briefly outlined Kobrynska’ s biography and discussed her evolution as a writer. Her leading role in the Ukrainian women’s movement was then examined. She was in the forefront of the movement for rural day care centers and communal kitchens; she also edited women's almanacs and organized women’s societies. In many respects, Kobrynska was far ahead of her time and consequently encountered much opposition from her conservative contemporaries.
