Chapter Summary

This chapter traces the contrasting trajectories of the demise of Hungarian liberal feminism and the rise of a right-wing women's movement in the immediate post-war period. In the absence of a comprehensive secondary literature on the subject, it attempts to outline what the author considers to be the defining trends and turning points in this complex set of developments. The chapter also offers a brief review of the few existing studies; they underline the pressing need for more research, to resolve outstanding questions ranging from women's electoral behaviour to the labeling of women's movements and the characterisation of their respective agendas. The research presented the chapter is based on the archival documents of the two competing women's organisations.

Keywords:Hungarian liberal feminism; post-war period; right-wing women's movement
