Krueger, Lillian "Madame Mathilda Franziska Anneke: an early Wisconsin journalist"


Madame Mathilda Franziska Anneke: an Early Wisconsin Journalist: Anneke (1817-1884) participated in the German revolution of 1848 and in 1849 fled to Milwaukee where in 1852 she began to publish a monthly feminist newspaper, the Frauen-Zeitung (also known as the Deutsche Frauen-Zeitung). This article reviews her editorial work in Germany, her character, and her physical appearance before focusing on her journalism. It quotes from the local press and from memoirs to describe the first issues of her paper, her women's rights platform, her dispute with the local printers' union, and her move to New York. It makes no mention of her later work as an educator and a close friend of Susan B. Anthony. (8 pages)
