For a discussion of the early impact of Venizelism, see Mazower (1992).
Between the ethos of liberal Venizelism, international pacifism, the strengthening labour movement, economic depression, and the march of fascism, as well as the growing dominance of a conservative strain of Greek nationalism as an outcome of Greek irredentism, the context was simultaneously ripe for the emergence of feminism but volatile and ultimately resistant to the changes feminists proposed to the social contract.
52While Venizelism widened the field of political possibility in Greece, nationalist politics and the ongoing struggle to define national identity had acquired new and more complex dimensions during the interwar years.
2The liberal ethos of Venizelism, enshrined in the new constitution drafted under his administration, provided a favourable environment for the emergence of new political and cultural currents.
12The effects of Venizelism on Greek nationalism created a mixed canvas for Greek feminism — nourished by the ethos of liberalisation but constrained by the negative effects of expansionism.
69Parren's anti-war campaign and her royalist sympathies culminated in her exile in 1917, as the goals of Venizelism (with the help of the Entente) prevailed, and were vindicated, when Greece's war effort was rewarded with vast territorial gains.
