Women’s labour activism in Eastern Europe and transnationally, from the age of empires to the late 20th century

Project description

The female force behind Eastern European labour activism

Eastern Europe experienced deep political and social upheaval as well as geographical changes during the 20th century – from the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires, the nation-state making and the Cold War. Despite vast amounts of literature, the role of women in labour, gender and social activism remains marginal in European historical studies, in general, and in labour and gender studies in particular. The EU-funded ZARAH project will study how social and political events shaped women’s labour activism. The project will examine the interactions of class, gender, nationality and religion in women's labour activism.
