This text asks whether there is a specifically European dimension to some of the major issues in women's studies. Among the lines of enquiry opened up: the impact on women of Europe's experience of warfare; the relationship between feminism and anti-semitism; migration and whiteness in the context of Europe's particular colonial histories; the importance of passion, emotion and psychoanalytical theory for the politics of certain European countries; the decline of the welfare state across Europe; and the phenomenon of the single woman.
