Zwischen Feminismus, Antisemitismus und Zionismus: Neue berufliche Orientierungen jüdischer Frauen aus Deutschland und Österreich an Fallbeispiele

Jewish women entered professions in the late 19th century that had excluded them on grounds of gender and ethnicity. Thus they became “new women” even if they remained in the female sphere as they played a leading role in the professional restructuring of Jewish society. Unlike female students they suffered less from anti-Semitism and misogyny and they could make a living in particular after their emigration because it was easier for them to find employment than was the case for academics.
