Women became much more prominent in the interwar years. The encouragement of education for women began to bear fruit; the fight for women’s rights was producing results, such as suffrage for women in 1918; and modern photography was for the most part in the hands of women. This produced networks in which women could promote one another in public. Most of them had a bourgeois Jewish background. Three examples illustrate this. The painter Broncia Koller-Pinell did a portrait of her 16 year old daughter-in-law for a short time, the future sculptress Anna Mahler.
