Since the second half of the 1980s social movements, which questioned the
legitimacy of the hitherto seemingly stable systems of Kemalist Turkey and
socialist Balkans, won ground. Political Islam struck Turkey; in the
Balkan socialist countries the dams broke, and parliamentary democracies
replaced monolithic socialist regimes. These processes have not been
gender neutral. Therefore the central question is-after the abolition of
patriarchy and the official installation of gender equality, are
patriarchy and female discrimination returning in the region through the
backdoor, although in a modernized version?

The author is professor for Southeast European history at
University of Graz/Austria. His research has been focussing on family and
gender relations in the Balkans.
