Abstract [en]

This article examines the work of the Women's International Democratic Federation (WIDF) with women from Africa, Asia and Latin America. It analyzes their role in the WIDF's decision-making process and activities during a period marked by decolonization and the intensification of women's rights activism outside Europe. This analysis contributes to a better understanding of the extent to which the WIDF's official position on support for the rights of women in the Global South was translated into the practical work of organization. The article is based on materials from Moscow archives that have hitherto not been explored in research on the WIDF. It shows that, in spite of the WIDF's formal anti-colonial stance, women from the Global South were not always given a voice or able to insert their demands into WIDF policy.
