Dictatorships love feminism

Women in Nazi Germany

Question
What was the position of women in Nazi Germany? How did it compare with their status under the Weimar Republic? What about education, work, family, that sort of thing?

Answer

Thank you for your fascinating questions. I will try to answer them as fully as possible, in the form of comparing one set of circumstances with another.

Under the Wilma Republic, women were able to vote; under the Nazis, nobody was able to vote.

Under Weimar, women’s education was very poor; under the Nazis, it was very good.

From 1929 to 1933, following the Great Depression, women were forced to become the main breadwinners; from 1933, it was possible for the man to support his wife on his own wage alone.

Under Weimar, abortion was legal; under the Nazis, it was outlawed. Under Weimar, birth control was encouraged; under the Nazis, a drive for motherhood was introduced.

Women played a full role in the Nazi Party from an early period. As early as 1928, the leader of the largest feminist organisation in Germany asked Hitler for permission to be incorporated into the Nazi Party.

Guida Diehl, Lydia Gottschewski and Gertrud Scholtz-Klink were the three most important women Nazi leaders. They controlled the destinies of millions of German women.

Hanna Reitsch was one of the top German test pilots and many women scientists worked on vital projects for the Nazi regime. Sadly, many women were also among the cruellest of the concentration camp guards.

Overall, the position of women improved under the Nazis, however much it sticks in the throat to admit it. This was particularly true in the field of education.

It was also under the fascist Perons that Argentine women got the vote. Dictators love feminism because they know women are more easily manipulated and/or frightened than men.

In fact, the only people who benefit from feminism are: career-minded lesbians who unlike me don’t mind that their girlfriends dump them at the drop of a hat (because feminism erodes the capacity for any kind of commitment, even in platonic friendships, let alone romance), and aspiring dictators.

    Actually that letter was tame and left out things. i would guess the biggest was lebensborn. where not only did they promote babies, but that women who were married or in any other condition, who were acceptably aryan, should mate with men of the SS.

    i didnt read it all, its also covered on wiki too, and other places. given the source it might be a bit slanted.

    Joe, thank you for the quotation. That was very apt.

    Artful Dodger, you’re quite right. Aryan women were encouraged to have sex with Aryan men regardless of marital status or anything, just to keep the Aryan babies coming. I’m familiar with that site, and it’s usually quite accurate. I’ve read a lot on the Lebensborn, and the whole plan was to basically have child-raising factories, where people would change diapers and stuff on an assembly line (literally, they had mechanized assembly lines) so that the Aryan mothers could keep passing on their genes without the bother of raising the products. And now the socialist governments of Europe are planning practically the same thing, just without the eugenic angle. And of course, the result of all these kids raised without parents will be a disaster, as it always is.
