    More roles for women

    True argues that the rapid and massive changes in Czech society after communism fell also included new roles for women. The change from a statist economy, mostly plugged into other countries in the Warsaw Pact, to a free market economy, exposed to global trends, was abrupt and severe. She suggests that women could now expand their gender roles by taking initiatives in a capitalist system. Changes in how families were viewed, and in the political system, and what this meant for women are also discussed.
