Rita Süssmuth turns 80 (* February 17, 1937)

In the 1980s Rita Süssmuth was one of the most committed politicians to fight on behalf of women’s rights and the rights of those on the margins of German society. The CDU politician became a member of the German federal cabinet in 1985. As the Federal Minister of Family Affairs, Youth and Health—and beginning in 1986 also of Women— she tackled a number of taboo topics of the time: the reform of the controversial paragraph 218, the culpability of marital rape, how to deal with AIDS and drug addiction, the restructuring of integration and migration. More than once she displeased her own party and had to deal with the repercussions. Her motto was „Fall down seven times, get up eight.“ It was exactly this perseverance, her objective and competent approach coupled with the fact that she held a PhD in Educational Science and was a recognized professor and still dared to make a fresh start in politics, that made her one of the most popular politicians of the Kohl era.

Even after she became Federal President of Germany in 1988 the recalcitrant thinker set political accents, for example when she favored the quick recognition of the Western border in Poland during the unification process, which caused quite an uproar among the league of displaced persons. When the CDU lost the election in 1998, Süssmuth terminated her term of office as the Federal President but remained a member of parliament. In 2000 she became the chair of the committee to restructure asylum and immigration, that had been convened by Kohl’s successor Gerhard Schröder. Süssmuth’s party, the CDU, opposed her participation in the multi-partisan committee, and they rejected the results and recommendations, which the „Süssmuth Comission“ presented a year later. Since giving up her seat in the German Parliament in 2002 the „catholic feminist“ has remained committed to important issues such as women’s rights, AIDS, migration and integration as well as German-Turkish relations and German-Polish relations.
