This thesis examines the cultural assault on women during the Weimar Republic in Germany, looking specifically at politics, economics, social and cultural phenomena, and the art work of the period. The paper argues that women, while advancing in many ways during World War I and the early part of the interwar years, were forced back into traditional roles, simultaneous to a buildup of masculinity, during the Republic, both of which foreshadowed the rise of Fascist and Nazi ideals.
