The panel offered interesting insights into the question how different economic backgrounds Soviet Union and imperial settings continental Empire of Austria-Hungary could influence approaches to gender and Empire. Bringing Female Suffrage and Female Writing together, the next session combined the global and national level. This problematic position led to rise of their own status in the respective organisations. Both stories exemplified the differences between imperial settings in the construction of race, gender and modernity. Nevertheless, the common condition to take part in the suffrage movement or to produce feministic books became clear: class.
Education and Schooling were defining moments of class formation and the focus of the next panel. In the s, female missionaries used the education of indigenous girls and women as a chance for their own empowerment.
The s on the other hand were characterized by American professionalism and scientific colonialism. In conclusion, the panel established a vivid picture of an imperial caring power  situated in the nexus between gender and political power. The following panel Development and social care in Colonial Settings stayed in the field of education, also focusing on a later time period.

By focusing on the settler home both presentations revealed the messy practices on the ground driving ideas of gender and Empire.
Overall, the focus of the conference on the period between and led to a pronunciation of political topics like feminism, suffrage or decolonization that rightly are prominently reflected in the history of gender and Empire. Remarkably, economic aspects played a minor role in the papers, even so the period was coined by both, the civilizing mission and the economic efficient administration of colonies. However, since historians often times rely on sources mainly written by elites, where economic assets usually present a given, an economic point of view can easily be lost.
On the other hand, the focus on elites allowed for a thoroughly analysis of inter-imperial connections and some presentations were able to expand their perspective by including innovative sources like photographs. The conference showed that gender played an important role in the different discourses and practices of Empire and became itself a defining aspect of anti- imperialism.
