Marianne Adelaide Hedwig Dohm (born Schlesinger, later Schleh) (September 20, 1831 – June 1, 1919) was a German feminist, and author. She was one of the first feminist thinkers to see gender roles as a result of socialization and not biological determinism.

Family[edit]

She was born in Berlin to Jewish parents,[1] as a daughter of (Henriette) Wilhelmine Jülich, née Beru (lastname means a Jewish pedigree from Jülich) and daughter(-in-law?) of a tobacco-maker Gustav Adolph Schleh (originally Schlesinger).

She became a wife of editor and actor (Friedrich Wilhelm) Ernst Dohm, and had 5 children:

  1. Hans Ernst Dohm (1854–1866)
  2. (Gertrud) Hedwig (Anna) Dohm(Pringsheim) (1855–1942)
  3. Ida Marie Elisabeth Dohm (1856-?)
  4. Marie Pauline Adelheid Dohm (1858-?)
  5. Eva Dohm (1860-?)

She became a grandmother of the musician Klaus Pringsheim, Sr. and Katharina "Katia" Pringsheim, the wife of Thomas Mann. She died in Berlin.
