Rosa Manus Lecture
The Rosa Manus lecture is a tribute to a woman who is of historical importance for the development of women’s position as fully-fledged political citizens. Rosa Manus (1881–1942) played a crucial role in the women’s suffrage movement and the peace movement at both a national and international level.

Through this annual lecture, Atria wishes to provide a critical, internationally oriented focus on academic developments that are relevant to women’s and gender history. It is therefore also perpetuating the memory of Rosa Manus and the historical significance of her work.

Francisca de Haan is Professor of Gender Studies and History at the Central European University in Budapest. She has published for many years on the international women’s movement. Recently she and Myriam Everard jointly compiled a book on Rosa Manus: Rosa Manus (1881-1942): The International Life and Legacy of a Jewish Dutch Feminist (Brill, 2017). Further information about this book and its launch is included on Atria’s

Mineke Bosch is Professor of Modern History at the University of Groningen. Her publications include a biography of Aletta Jacobs: Een onwrikbaar geloof in rechtvaardigheid: Aletta Jacobs 1854-1929, (2005).

The Rosa Manus lecture is free of charge.
Please RSVP before 5 December on Atria’s website where you will also find all the
latest information about the lecture and the programme.

Atria looks forward to welcoming you on 14 December.
