Biography

Luxembourgian suffragist, women's rights activist, and the founder and secretary of the Action féminine, a women's rights organization which became a part of the International Council of Women in 1926 and from 1927 also issued its own paper with the same name, the first in Luxembourg. The purpose of the organization was to improve the rights of women in the civil code. Although women's suffrage was introduced in 1919, married women were still minors subjugated to their husbands. The organization became successful, with local branches all over Luxembourg. In the municipal election of 1928, Action féminine presented a list of all female candidates, and Schleimer-Kill was elected to the municipal council of Esch-sur-Alzette for the party, serving there until 1934.

She died on 18 November 1973 in Esch-sur-Alzette, aged 89.
