Women in the transformational democratic society of Croatia
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis investigates how women in a transformational, post-conflict country perceive equality between women and men. Specifically, the thesis examines whether there is a need to anticipate, analyze, manage and resolve potential conflict issues perceived by women in Croatia towards increased gender equality in the course of the state's transformation towards full democracy. Through guided interviews, women in Croatia discussed whether the status of their society could be measured, in part, by the representation of women in public, political, and economic spheres. The thesis is guided by the theoretical assumption that gender equality and the political and socio-economic development of Croatia are interrelated; therefore, the contributions women could make in the transformational democratic society of Croatia may be crucial for its successful development towards democracy. This qualitative study offers awareness and insights on women‟s perceptions of gender equality issues experienced in Croatia.
