Project description

The present study aims to investigate if Belgian, French and Dutch feminist groups of the 1960s, 70s and 80s set up coalitions with men with regard to mobilization for the legalisation of abortion and contraception, the critique of power relations and labor divisions within marriage and the prevention of violence against women. Both oral and written sources will be used (interviews, archives, feminist press and literature).
