This chapter takes a look at the networks of feminists and their international movement, describing the wave of activism that spread in 1912, and looking at the strong anxiety over the increasing ambitions of women. It then discusses the public debates on suffragism and feminism, the silencing of The Freewoman: A Humanist Weekly and the possible changes made to the Poetry magazine. Finally, the chapter studies the avant-garde journal Camera Work, the roles of women in modernist literary history and the modernist decades that followed 1912.

Keywords:   feminist networks, international movement, wave of activism, suffragism, feminism, modernist literary history, modernist decades
