About this book

The collapse of socialist regimes across Southeastern Europe changed the rules of the political game and led to the transformation of these societies. The status of women was immediately affected. The contributors to this volume contrast the status of women in the post-socialist societies of the region with their status under socialism.

Reviews

“The volume provides an overview of the situation of women in Southeastern Europe since 1990, focusing on inequality through an examination of legislation, women’s representation in government and administration, and discrimination against sexual minorities. … the volume is extremely rich in empirical data and will be a useful reference and beginning point for any scholar tackling questions of gender inequality in this region.” (Tamara Pavasović Trošt, Europe-Asia Studies, Vol. 65 (7), October, 2017)

“The collection delivers a convincing overview of gender issues in Southeastern Europe, offering historical, sociological, and political knowledge and analysis directed towards the situation of gender equality in the region. The book’s strength is its representativeness, evident in its methodological diversity, its broad scope of topics, and its survey of the current state of research. ... the book occupies a fruitful ground and opens up the chance for further research and discussion ... .” (Brigita Malenica, Südosteuropa Journal of Politics and Society, Vol. 65 (3), 2017)
