Dr. Natalia Jarska: Gendering abortion under state socialism
The aim of the class is to discuss abortion policies under state socialism. Why abortion law was liberalized in mid-1950s in many East-Central European countries? How these policies related to the principle of gender equality and women’s emancipation? How were women’s and men’s roles constructed in the discourses on abortion?
