Few Swedish female figures continue to engage and provoke as much as Elin Wägner (1882-1949). Elin was a Swedish writer and feminist. She has become best known for her commitment to women's suffrage and for co-founding Save the Children in 1919. She was a member of the Swedish Academy from 1944 and was one of the women's and peace movement's portal figures. 

This picture is a clip from Elin Wägner's third novel The pen shaft which was published in 1910 and became a great sales success. In the picture we see a portrait of Elin with quotes: 

“The power to persevere at work, it comes, when one begins to feel solidarity with one's gender, so that its pain becomes one's own pain, its humiliation one's own humiliation. I have talked to many men about the issue of women, and I have heard many views, but I have still heard too few say: they are also human beings. "
