Summary/Abstract: This article discusses the Bund’s gender politics present in Tsukunft, the youth organization of the party. In the interwar period Tsukunft grew into one of the most active and dynamic organizations within the Bundist movement in Poland. The author analyzes Tsukunft’s discourse to find out the actual position of the women in the organization. By confronting the organization’s material with the sources produced by the movement’s women activists, the author tries to find out more about women’s experience in Tsukunft. The article therefore incorporates the marginalized narrative of and on Jewish women into modern historiography
