View a recording of the August 6, 2020 Zoom presentation. Who was the New Woman, and how was she received? The New Woman embodies the complex nature of Weimar Germany—a society thriving with culture yet paralyzed by uncertainty. A paradox herself, the New Woman is a dramatic illustration of both liberation and lasting discrimination, independence and anxiety. Join your friends at the DANK Haus and invited panelists for a critical analysis of gender representations in Weimar media. From film to fashion, newspapers to novels, we will examine a variety of female archetypes and consider their role in reflecting the social, political, and economic climate of the Weimar era.
