Abstract [en]

Research has shown that the Swedish womenʼs suffrage movement used language as a means to affect public opinion and used the means developed by popular movements to educate women. The aim of this article is to examine how the womenʼs suffrage movement spread among its members communicative oral skills to participate in meetings. The point of departure is four research questions: 1) How was learning organized through the courses on citizenship that the movement arranged? 2) What role did written instructions play? 3) How was learning organized in the local branches of the movement? 4) How did the anti-suffrage movement and the misogyny of the time influence the strategies deployed?

The theoretical framework used is ethnography of communication and the material consists of meeting minutes, course programs, news articles and handbooks from the archives of the Swedish womenʼs suffrage movement.

The results show 1) that the courses were successful and contained both practical meeting exercises and lectures by skilled lecturers, 2) that the movement both used existing handbooks and produced their own, 3) that the work in the local branches gave the participating women substantial meeting experience. And finally, 4) that the anti-suffrage movement paradoxically may have functioned as one of the driving forces behind the educational initiatives that enhanced the skills of women and strengthened the suffrage movement.
