Abstract

This convincing study provides a new insight into the religious self-understanding, Catholic networks, socio-political discussions and scope of the Catholic women's movement after 1945. In its social conceptions, the women's federation broke away from traditional role models and, following the bourgeois women's movement, advocated emancipatory claims. From the appreciation of the different family estates as equal ranked high esteem of the federation for single working women. A partnership-based understanding of marriage flowed into the rebuilding of the Catholic marriage counseling, the mother's work was to make the performance of the mothers publicly aware. The women's federation decidedly promoted the vocational training of women and encouraged them to participate politically. Through his personal network, he brought the convictions of his female members more emphatically than other Catholic organizations in the political and domestic church discourse. The committed women were not infrequent. Their religious roots and spirituality did not contradict this understanding, but rather formed its basis. (Publisher)
