Engendering Transitions

Women's Mobilization, Institutions and Gender Outcomes

Georgina Waylen

Gender and Politics

In a new and over-arching thematic analysis, Engendering Transitions answers these questions by comparing the transitions from state socialism and authoritarianism that took place as part of the "third wave" of democratization that swept the world from the mid 1970s onwards.
