The biographies of two women who played a pioneering role in Dutch politics appeared in 2011: Marga Klompé (1912-1986) and Hilda Verwey-Jonker (1908-2004). That their lives coincided for pretty much the entire 20th century makes comparing their biographies an attractive and insightful venture. This article discusses areas of commonality between the two biographies, while also addressing the diversity of the issues at stake. This more meta-analytic sociological comparison examines the biographical methods employed and relevance of gender.
