    I have deeper respect for my mom

    Being a third generation 100% Lithuanian in this country I was totally unaware of how progessive Lithuania was and still continues to be. Women in Lithuania had been given rights and powers for centuries, that even a country as progressive as the U.S. did not until the last 100 years. Additionally, I did not really know how oppressive the Russia people were upon the whole LIthuanian culture before WW II and Stalin's agreement with Hitler that the US abided by after 1945. A good book. My first, on my own Lithianian heritage. And I am very glad to have read about it.

    Informative book on contemporary Lithuanian women

    Women in Transition will provide a clear, thorough, and engaging introduction for anyone who would like to learn about the social and economic conditions that exist for contemporary Lithuanian women. More than that, it is an extremely important book, given the paucity of materials available to English speakers about Lithuania generally and the women of the nation in particular. Each chapter was written by a different scholar and the resulting variation in voice is refreshing. Because all of the contributors are Lithuanian, the reader can be certain that the picture given is an accurate one and truly reflects the present-day realities of the culture as experienced by its women. The book is very readable and addresses a wide range of topics including family life, women's employment, reproduction, women in the academy, and the concerns that Lithuanian women have with American feminism. LaFont's Introduction along with the first two chapters (focusing on the role of women historically) help to make the reasons for current conditions more easily understood. The book is filled with interesting statistical data as well as informative personal accounts and histories. LaFont's volume contains a wealth of information. It will undoubtedly be appreciated by those with an interest in the lives of women in Eastern Europe.
