VIGNOLI, Marcela. El Consejo Nacional de la Mujer en Argentina y su dimensión internacional, 1900-1910. Travesía (San Miguel de Tucumán) [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.2, pp.121-147. ISSN 2314-2707.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, some Argentine women from middle and upper sectors of Buenos Aires society, decided to accompany the doctor Cecilia Grierson in the initiative to create the National Council for Women in the country. This important step integrated them into an international network of women who had been creating similar entities in other parts of the world, and all of them came together in the International Council for Women, which had been created in 1889 in Washington. The creation generated expectations inside and outside the country. The International Council saw with great enthusiasm that the other countries of the region imitate the creation of the Argentine Council, since it was the first experience in Latin America. On the other hand, some of the local members looked with great expectation at the possibility of coming into contact with the feminine and feminist problems of the rest of the world, comparing the Argentine situation in matters of health, rights and education and also in some cases it opened the possibility of traveling on behalf of the country in international meetings. However, the incorporation of the Argentine Council to the international did not mean that its postulates were adopted or that the adopted resolutions were put into practice. Even at times, the Argentine Council seemed to go against their international counterpart entering into open opposition with some of their ideas. The question of women's suffrage or “peace and arbitration”, for example, is illustrative of the Council's weak adherence to international feminist postulates. In fact, despite the insistence of the foreigners to put these issues on the agenda of the Argentine Council, not only was there no agreement, but during the first years it was not even discussed at the meetings. The hypothesis is that the avoidance to consider this and other issues not only generated friction with the International Council, but early opened an internal front that over the years was deepened in such a way that the Council of 1910 could no longer resist the differences between its associates.
