Summary/Abstract: Maria Ilnicka, the editor-in-chief (1865–1896) of the magazine “Bluszcz”, had a great influence on the formation of attitudes and views of upper class Polish women in the 19th century. She was also a personage full of contradictions; although nowadays she is usually presented as a person with conservative views, but she can be seen as a feminist for she consistently supported the right of women to education (including higher education), and professional work also in the prestigious intellectual field.
