Description In this contribution, Eliška Machová (1858–1926), an executive of the Vesna women’s club of Brno, serves as a model example of shifts in social praxis of the older line of the women’s movement in Moravia in the 1880s and 1890s. She was at the forefront of many projects that moved the Moravian women’s movement towards direct coope- ration with the People’s Party in 1901. In spite of this, she became one of the faces of her campaign before the Reichsrat elections, and held a traditional view on women’s activism, based especially on motherhood and raising children, in which there was no place for feminist demands such as enfranchisement or high schools for girls.
