Gender and Identity in Central and Eastern Europe
Psychology Press, 1999 - Social Science - 142 pages
This collection highlights elements of the decade of changes in Central and Eastern Europe since 1989 from the perspectives of gender and identity. Resistance to the negative consequences of certain changes for various groups in society demonstrate that women's activities have played a large part in securing democratic developments in various countries. From participation in politics in Slovenia to an exploration of the shifting boundaries of gender and sexuality in youth cultural discourse in Russia, focus is on the importance of considerations of gender analysis in thinking through the ways in which change is engendered.
