Texte du rabat


Women in Power in Post-Communist Parliaments examines the life and workof women who have reached positions of political power after the end of communism inEurope. It explores the roles they have adopted, the relationships they havecultivated, and the agendas they have pursued. Much of the literature on women inpost-Communist states has focused on one or two countries. This volume treats theissues comparatively, in six countries -- the Czech Republic, Germany (with a focuson the former GDR), Slovenia, Bulgaria, Poland, and Russia. It also includesinterviews with and written statements by the very "women in power" discussed in thefirst half of the book, giving voice to their common and divergent experiences aspolitical actors within an environment of stormy economies and new foreignengagements, particularly with the European Union.
