Postcard to Maikki Friberg: the progress of the women’s rights movement

Card from London to Maikki Friberg about exchanging news of the progress of the women’s rights movement. Maikki Friberg was a member of the Finnish Women’s Association since its founding in 1906 and the chair of the Finnish Feminist Association Unioni 1920–1927.

Maikki Friberg (1861–1927) was a Finnish suffragette, activist, geography teacher and journalist. She is best known for her work as chair of the Finnish Feminist Association Unioni and the editor in chief of the Women’s Voice – a magazine she founded. She also worked actively with education, the peace movement and the temperance movement in Finland. She used her extensive international networks to convey European trends to Finland, but she also made Finland more known abroad.
