International Institute of Social History (IISH) - Women's History The women who left traces of their life and work in the IISH were typically involved in the labour movement and other social movements. They were writers, journalists, newspaper publishers, politicians, historians, teachers, artists, nurses or philosophers. They campaigned for humane working conditions and fair wages, for peace, human rights, sexual reform, the improvement of education, health care, or housing. They were socialists, Marxists, Trotskyists or anarchists. Among them were women's rights campaigners, feminists and suffragists. In some cases they were secretaries or translators assisting prominent writers or politicians, but often enough they were important thinkers or activists in their own right.
