Women, Men, Dada?
Czech Gender Relations

Christiane Brenner

Deutsche Fassung


In the Czech Republic, gender equality is an official policy goal, but the country is far from achieving it. The topic hardly resonates within society. Many reject the term “feminism.” This attitude can be traced back to “emancipation from above” under socialism and to the policies of the 1990s. Women place a great deal of value on their education and careers, but the state does too little to improve conditions for their participation in business and politics.
