This collection highlights changes in Central and Eastern Europe since 1989 from the perspectives of gender and identity. Resistance to the negative consequences of certain changes demonstrate that women's activities have played a large part in democratic developments in various countries.
'Corrin's collection fills a gap in the existing research of the forces that stand in the way of democratisation in Central and Eastern Europe, pointing out that the participation of all members of society on an equal footing is a basic human right.' - Millennium
'Overall this is a handy volume, useful for its theoretical information and for the theoretical questions it raises … informative and thought-provoking.' - Europe-Asia Studies
'Honest and poignant … a welcome addition to the now prodigious literature on women in postsocialist societies and to the new generation of scholarship.' - Slavic Review
