Chapter Summary

Albania declared its independence on 28 November 1912, and a provisional government was formed. Independence was seen by the Qiriazi sisters as creating the opportunity for educated women to contribute to the cause of education, especially the education of women so they would be able to know and exercise their rights, and to form women's organisations in other towns. Due to the situation in which Albania found itself after World War I, the nature of the Albanian women's movement was rather particular and differed from movements elsewhere in Europe. The Civil Code marked the change in women's legal position in the family. The women's movement came into being later in Albania than in other parts of Europe. At the same time, it faced challenges that many others were spared, at least in western Europe.
