Volume 6: Women in Austria

This volume deals with the position of women in Austrian society, politics, and in the economy and shows that it follows the familiar trajectory of Western societies Women were expected to accept their“proper” place in a male patriarchal world. Achieving equality in all spheres of life was a long struggle that is still not complete in spite of many advances. The chapters in Women in Austria attest to the growing interest and vibrancy in the areas of women's studies in Austria and present a cross-section of new research in this field to an international audience.
