Changing state feminism

In Joyce Outshoorn & Johanna Kantola (eds.), Changing State Feminism. Palgrave-Macmillan (2007)

Abstract
Most Western democracies established women's policy agencies to improve the status of women by the 1990s. However, the political context has changed drastically: developments such as welfare state reform, multilevel governance, regionalization and decentralization have impinged on opportunities for agencies and women's movements to mobilize. One of the book's key questions is how have women's policy agencies been able to develop, maintain or enhance their roles in the transformed political context and how have women's movements adapted to change in twelve states
