The Feminist movement

In the inter-war period, new processes sought expression in the field of culture, with predominant among them the active Feminist movement. The League for the Rights of Women was associated at this period with the International Women's Suffrage Association and became the main vehicle for the extension of the right to vote to women as well.
The innovations in the appearance of the urban female population in particular, and the introduction of new forms of entertainment and spectacle, caused serious, occasionally violent reactions. On the other hand, the entrance of a big percentage of the female population into the field of paid employment made necessary the formation of a new institutional framework that would satisfy the claims of women. In the newspaper and magazine articles of the time concern for the developments that were shaking the 'traditional household' was very strong, a fact that was frequently experienced as an 'external' threat aimed at distorting the manners of Greek society.
