Women maintain the fabric of Central Asian societies, but
they come under increasing pressure. There is a wide-spread
re-traditionalisation of gender roles taking place, and
women’s status in public life is continuously decreasing.

Contributors of this book shed light on some of the issues
behind the gender statistics and legal implementation
challenges commonly known in the West using a wide variety
of methodological approaches and combining scholarly
interest with an activist stance. This qualitative approach
is the only suitable way of understanding the nature of the
issues arising in the pivotal region of Central Asia.

With a foreword by the former President of the Kyrgyz
Republic, Mme. Roza Otunbayeva.
