A new book about early Yugoslav feminism by Zsofia Lorand

An interesting book The Feminist Challenge to the Socialist State in Yugoslavia by Zsofia Lorand (Palgrave 2018) qoutes many early Yugoslav feminist texts, including an old essay collection by Slavenka Drakulić “Smrtni grijesi feminizma” (The mortal sins of feminism, 1984 – available in Croatian only).

This book tells the story of new Yugoslav feminism in the 1970s and 1980s, reassessing the effects of state socialism on women’s emancipation through the lens of the feminist critique. It explores the history of the ideas defining a social movement, analysing the major debates and arguments this milieu engaged in from the perspective of the history of political thought, intellectual history and cultural history.
