Gender and history of revolutions in Eastern and Central Europe

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In looking at how economic, political, sociocultural, and epistemological transformations are coterminous with notions and practices of gender and sexuality, this entry highlights women's generative role in the production of radical or reformist changes and examines the operations of power that derailed or subsumed women's social agendas within the new socioeconomic, cultural, and political regimes. The timeline of this analysis includes watershed moments in the history of the region such as the Russian Revolution, the end of World War II in 1945, the fall of state-socialist regimes in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and of the Soviet Union in 1989, and extends across the European Union accession years for 10 CEE countries up until the global financial crises of the late 2000s and early 2010s.
