Gender, Voice, and Violence in Poland: New Book

The Political Inequality project announces our new book, Gender, Voice, and Violence in Poland: Women’s Protests during the Pandemic, edited by Adrianna Zabrzewska & Joshua K. Dubrow and published by IFiS PAN Publishers. This book was funded by the National Science Centre, Poland (2016/23/B/HS6/03916).

In autumn 2020, as the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic began, Poland’s Constitutional Tribunal issued a ruling that severely restricted access to abortion. Massive street protests, led by Strajk Kobiet (Women’s Strike), quickly followed. This sourcebook presents, in English, the voices of activists, politicians, and academics on the 2020 protests in Poland after the Constitutional Tribunal’s ruling.

This is an open source book. You can download it on this website.
