A RARE EVIDENCE OF THE EARLY GEORGIAN FEMINISM.
The history of women’s organizations in Georgia can be traced back to the late 19th century, when the Georgian society witnessed the emergence of the first female committees. These early women’s movements became a prerequisite for the drastic increase in the number of Georgian female organizations in the early 20th century. One of the most influential of such establishments was The Society of Caucasian Women founded in 1909 and aimed at providing women in need with both moral and material support. The activities of the society included organization of various courses, libraries, reading rooms, entertaining events, lectures, and workshops, publication of books, initiation of mutual funds, etc.
Written in Russian, the edition reviews all of the major projects undertaken by The Society of Caucasian Women during the period from May 11, 1913 to May 11, 1914. From the organizational structure to the annual expenses, the brochure sheds light on the future agenda of the club and features a lesser-known information on the initiatives of the organization, including public readings, tours, entertaining events, etc. The edition contains 3 budget sheets with specific financial data (divided in two sections - expenses/incomes), as well as 3 charts capturing estimated expenses and gains for the year 1914-1915. Each of the tables defines the sources of income and objects of expenses of the society and its affiliated Club of Worker Women/ Georgian Section. The publication closes with a list of The Society of Caucasian Women members which indicates 133 names.
Overall, a rare insight into the lesser-known activities of the early Georgian women’s organization.
