Summary This text outlines the proceedings of the International Feminist Congress held in Brussels, in the summer of 1897. The international group focused on five major themes: women's civic rights; the nature of patriarchy; women's economic rights; the status of the feminist movement; and women and public charity. In the discussion on women's civic rights, a number of speakers addressed concerns brought forth by a new German civic code with attention also given to English and Russian women's civic status. The second session, which investigated men's social and biological roles, questioned the degree to which male privilege is socially constructed. In the discussion of women's economic rights, many speakers linked the idea of economic independence with the goals of feminism -- itself a topic elaborated upon in the Congress's fourth session. The fifth and final session looked at women's participation in charitable organizations, and hypothesized on how to make women's public work in this arena more socially palatable
