Feminism and the professionalisation of social work : a socio-historical approach through two Swiss examples (1910-1970)

The importance of the role women, in particular of feminist organisations, in the history of social work has been highlighted  by several historical studies. These studies have also emphasised the need to adopt a comparative and transnational approach in order to understand not only the importance women had in the creation of the first institutions, associations and schools, but also their contribution to the definition of the missions of social work. This article aims at contributing to this debate through a comparison of the professionalisation process of two distinct occupations in the field of social work in Switzerland, at two different moments in time.
