Thinking Differently: A Reader In European Women’s Studies

This is the first study to ask whether there is a specifically European dimension to some of the major issues in Women’s Studies. In doing so, it fills some of the gaps in our knowledge about women and enriches debates hitherto dominated by Anglo-American influences. Among the new areas of enquiry opened up are: women and militarism, ethnic cleansing as an attack on the family, the problematic relationship between feminism and anti-Semitism, the decline of the welfare state across Europe, the issue of the relationship between women’s rights and human rights, and the rise of the phenomenon of the “single” woman.
