This chapter discusses the historical roles of women from the 1880s to the 1940s. It shows a world of activism across national boundaries. The invocation of the ideals of Pan-Americanism by the feminists working at the international level added a new dimension to the inter-American conferences of the 1920s. The themes of equal rights and peace, both of which were believed to be within the special province of women, mark their efforts. The women's work for gender equity did not diminish their commitment to the cause of international peace. The women were acting within the historical context of a half century of a feminist, pacifist tradition, established by the women of the Americas from the Latin American Scientific Congresses of the 1890s to the Primer Congreso Femenino in 1910 to the creation of the IACW in 1928.

Keywords:   Latin American feminism, Pan-Americanism, equal rights, peace, gender equity, Latin American Scientific Congresses, Primer Congreso Femenino
