The Politics of Language: "Feminism in Eastern Europe"
In Eastern Europe, "feminism" is a dirty word. The same holds true for other words like "emancipation," "equal rights for women," and "women's liberation." Under communist regimes of the past, "emancipation" was imposed on women and given as the reason given for requiring women to leave their homes to become part of the labor force.
