Notebook Isaac Israel - Aletta Jacobs
Aletta Jacobs was the most famous Dutch representative of the first feminist wave. That there had to be a fight for women's suffrage has indirectly to do with Jacobs. Originally, the law only set a wage limit for voting. Because she was a doctor, she met this wage limit and wanted to exercise her right to vote. She had prepared this attempt together with her two friends Titia van der Tuuk and Elise Haighton. Only then was the ban on women voting explicitly included in Article 80 of the Constitution. Jacobs was chairman of the Association for Women's Suffrage and attended the international women's meetings of the World Association for Women's Suffrage.
