As the history of internationalism enjoys a return of interest, the lack of recognition of the role of women in shaping multilateralism and international thought is appearing in all its extent. Many women participated in the emerging study of international relations but most of them are unknown to this day, giving the impression that women did not give thought to international relations, In fact, some the most defining turning points in the history of international studies are connected to eminent female thinkers, whose contributions were later obscured or deliberately hidden in the folds of history. Some academic projects and a growing number of researchers are uncovering the names and contributions of these women and restoring their right stand in history and history itself. This debate is a contribution to this effort and an essential part of celebrating 100 years of Multilateralism in Geneva.
