Seven Czech Women Portraits of Courage, Humanism, and Enlightenment - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Baer, Josette (2015). Seven Czech Women Portraits of Courage, Humanism, and Enlightenment. Stuttgart: ibidem.

Abstract

This engaging and insightful book is the first historical study in English portraying the lives and fates of Czech women. The seven life stories, ranging from the late 19th century to the present day, expose the often cruel political history of Bohemia (19th century), the Czech lands in Czechoslovakia (20th century), and the Czech Republic (20th–21st century) through the eyes of prominent women whose acts and deeds on behalf of their fellow citizens remain unforgotten in the Czech collective mind. The three chapters and four oral history interviews offer a captivating insight into how the situation of Czech women in society has changed during a most eventful period of history.
This book has been preceded by a first volume on Slovak women (ISBN 9783838206387) whose lives have been of the same singular importance for Slovakia as their Czech counterparts were for their country. The two volumes are separate entities in their own right, but together provide the reader with a comprehensive picture of women´s lives in the Czech lands and Slovakia, stressing the distinct political circumstances Czech and Slovak women have faced in recent history
