04-03 DATES, ANNIVERSARIES, and EVENTS
B. 04-03-1817, Matilde Franziska Giesler Anneke, German-born American translator, poet, playwright, author, editor, suffragist, and fighter for women's rights. In Germany during 1848 she published a revolutionary journal and Deutsche Frauen Zeitung, the first women's publication in Western Europe.
Married to a revolutionary, she went into battle at his side. Losing, they fled Germany to Milwaukee, with their six children. There she re-established the Deutsche Frauen Zeitung, a monthly feminist journal which employed all women. It was forced to close because a German typographical union demanded that printing firms fire any women who worked as printers and compositers... or else.
She moved to New Jersey where she published her woman's rights journal for almost three years. She divorced her husband and went to Switzerland with Mary Booth to whom she dedicated several poems. Returning to Milwaukee after the Civil War, she founded the Wisconsin Women's Suffrage Association (1869) and helped found the Tochter Institut (no e) where she was principal and also taught.
