The process of women formulating international law started with congresses heldby the transnational women's movement. Here femalespecialists met, exchanged legal knowledge, collected and compared law,wrestled over formulations, and, starting from national rights, sought to findan overarching approach to the problem that in all legal families especiallythe legal situation of married women was tied to that of their husbands,exposing them to severe legal disadvantages. They established a parallelnetwork in the phase of the beginning of the male-written international law, inorder to find common ground in constant international exchanges. Starting fromnational rights they initiated legal reform at the global level and intended toformulate a supranational legal order. Eventually these proposals found their way alsointo international "male" bodies. The paper will show that women´s participation is indispensable to the process of the emergence ofinternational law but has so far seldom being picked up as an object ofresearch in the history of international law.
