Abstract [en]

Anna Ahlström -- The Foundress

It would take almost forty years before Swedish women with academic degrees got access to posts in the government administration, which constituted the most important labour market for their male colleagues. Dr Anna Ahlström, born 1863, was one of many women, who with great inventiveness succeeded in creating a strong position in heir professions and at the same time manged to play a strategic role in the struggle for equal rights for women with academic degrees.

The article focuses on how Anna Ahlström, during a few years at the beginning of the twentieth century not only founded one of the most esteemed private upper secondary schools for girls (Nya Elementarskolan för flickor), but also through public adresses and petitions, laid the foundations for what would become ABKF's [Swedish Association of University Women] successful activities. Of particular importance for this anniversary publication is the fact that it was Dr. Ahlström who, in March 1904, invited to the first meeting during which the work on the constitution of ABKF began, and that the meeting took place at her school, in Stockholm city centre,where she was Headmistress.
