• Identity, dissatisfaction and political activity - the experience of East German women since unification

      Wagener, Debbie; Chester College of Higher Education (GRIN Verlag, 2002)
      This book investigates the integration of East German women into the new political, legal, and economic system of the re-unified Germany. East German women comprise a particularly significant group in the process of assimilation into the new Germany and they have been frequently singled out as those who have lost the most as a result of unification. The chapters cover - feminist ideology in east and west and the potential for conflict; public policy and the realities of female emancipation in East Germany; East German distinctiveness; dissatisfaction with the Federal Republic; and political activity and mobilisation.
