Feminism in Western and Central Eastern Europe

Monday, 8 April 2013, 6:00pm - 7:30pm, IWM library

The aim of this debate is to bring feminists from Western and Central/Eastern European countries together to share their experiences: How was western feminism affected by the fact that many of its proposals have been incorporated into European mainstream politics? How might the same process change the face of Polish and Hungarian feminism? What can Central European movements learn from its Western counterparts and vice versa? These questions will be discussed focusing on two fundamental concepts: work-home balance and parity in business and politics.
