Toni Pfülf

Biography

German politician who represented the Social Democratic Party (Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands, SPD). A supporter of equal rights for women, she was an elected member of the Reichstag from 1920 to 1933. After joining her SPD colleagues in fruitlessly opposing the Enabling Act, which established rule by the Nazi regime in March 1933, she was driven to despair and committed suicide three months later, on 8 June 1933 at age 55 in Munich.

She was the daughter of the army officer Emil Pfülf and Justina Ströhlein. Against the wishes of her parents, after spending her childhood in Metz, she attended a teacher training establishment in Munich. On receiving her diploma, she taught in Upper Bavaria and from 1910 to 1919 in Munich. While working as a teacher, she undertook volunteer work for orphaned children while calling for educational support for working-class children. As a result, she became a well-known figure in Bavaria.

Since 2013, in her memory, the Toni Pfülf Prize has been awarded every two years for outstanding commitment by women for women in politics and society.
