Summary/Abstract: In 1930 in Lviv, by the initiative of Maria Bruchnalska the Museum of Distinguished Polish Women was opened. The Museum’s creators wanted to establish, apart from a reminder of events and figures from the past, their own canon of heroines and propagate patriotic attitudes among Polish women. As a result of the press announcement, several hundred women’s biographies were sent to the Museum by family members and friends. They revealed an interesting picture of “distinguished Polish women”.
