Sexual Politics and the European Union: The New Feminist Challenge

Synopsis

For member states in the EU, the concerns of the nation state are becoming secondary to that of the union. This has serious implications for the concerns of women, and this book provides a basis for assessing European integration from a feminist stance.

Excerpt

The essays in this volume were first presented at "Women, The European State, and Community," an international conference sponsored by the Center for European Studies at Kalamazoo College in conjunction with the International Area Studies and Women's Studies Programs (May 1994). The meeting proved extraordinary because of the collection of those women who chose to participate. Each presentation was revised for this volume and also takes into account developments since the conference.

I would like to thank those students and colleagues who assisted in planning the conference. Special appreciation is extended to the Center for European Studies at New York University where, as a visiting scholar, I was able to edit this volume. Lastly, there are several individuals whose generous support throughout this work must be noted: David Barclay, Nora Evers, Gail Griffin, Annie McCombs, Janet Riley, Florence Rush, Elizabeth Salkind, and Martin Schain.
