As one of the founders of a small non-governmental organization called the Network of East-West Women, I was preoccupied in the early 1990s with keeping a little list of the difficulties facing the often isolated and beleaguered Central and East European feminist colleagues who made up half the Network membership. The list might have been named “Regional Reasons Why People Reject Feminism” and it grew and grew, including reasons I respected and reasons I hated, but above all including a variety of reasons, a richness of reasons from every quarter of both public and private life. Dissidents had their rationale for disliking feminism and so did former communists, and on and on.
