Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Presented by Oleksy (humanities, U. of Lodz and U. of Warsaw, Poland), Hearn (gender studies, Linköping U., Sweden), and Golanska (transatlantic and media studies, U. of Lodz), 12 papers explore gendered aspects of citizenship in European and supranational contexts, the nation-state in regional contexts, and transnational and migratory contexts. Topics include citizens' and women's duties in relation to the European Union's gender equality policy; feminist challenges to citizenship theory and practice in the European Union, contested strategies of achieving gender equality in the European Union, tensions in equal opportunity work between gender equality issues and issues of diversity, models of transgender citizenship in the UK, dimensions of oppression associated with gender and ethnicity in Sweden and Denmark, regulations and debates over Muslim women's headscarves in Europe, experiences and strategies of skilled immigrant women seeking professional integration in Switzerland, ethnic minority women and political influence in Norway, and gender perspectives on social justice among Russian women immigrants in the Nordic countries.

Synopsis:

The underlying theme of this edited collection is gendered citizenship, as well as the challenges and limits that confront the gendering of citizenship. It critiques the notion of the genderless nation-state citizen ? in both analytical and policy terms and contexts ? and necessarily engages with at least three major sets of contradictions or tensions: limitations on achieving gender equal or gender equitable citizenship; relations and differences between gender equality policy, diversity policy, and gender mainstreaming; and interplays of academic analyses of and practical interventions on gendered citizenship. Contributors from diverse scientific disciplines and academic backgrounds aim to provide a better understanding of the challenges that societies within Europe and elsewhere face vis-?-vis diversity, regionalism, transnationalism, and migration.
