Parental activism movements are strengthening around the world and often spark tense personal and political debate. With an emphasis on Russia and Central and Eastern Europe, this collection analyzes formal organizations as well as informal networks and online platforms which mobilize parents to advocate for change on a grassroots level. In doing so, the work collected here explores the interactions between the politics, everyday life, and social activism of mothers and fathers. From fathers’ rights movements to natural childbirth to vaccination debates, these essays provide new insight into the identities and strategies applied by these movements as they confront local ideals of gender and family with global ideologies.

About the Author:

Katalin Fábián is Professor in the Department of Government and Law at Lafayette College. She edited Domestic Violence in Postcommunist States: Local Activism, National Policies, and Global Forces.


Elżbieta Korolczuk is Researcher in the Department of Sociology and Work Science at the University of Gothenburg and the School of Culture and Education at Södertörn University, Sweden. She is coeditor of several Polish volumes on parenthood and politics.

Review:

We see here evidence of engaged citizens, not directly challenging political leaders about broad economic or political policies, but seeking to change public attitudes to vital issues facing people in their everyday lives as parents. ...This is very much a contribution to scholarship and knowledge. We just don't know about this type of activism. (David Ost author of The Defeat of Solidarity: Anger and Politics in Postcommunist Europe)

This is an important and innovative book about a developing social phenomenon -- parental movements -- that is not yet on the radar screens of gender scholars of eastern Europe and those interested in gender-inflected social movements more generally, around the world. But it should be. The volume collects contrasting case studies that are not easy to categorize as conservative or progressive. That contributes to the book's interest, opening up new conceptualizations. It reveals emerging and sometimes unexpected positions, strategies and commitments among eastern European citizens.

(Susan Gal author of Reproducing Gender: Politics, Publics, and Everyday Life After Socialism)

This is an excellent collection with conceptual and methodological unity and high quality contributions that are thoroughly researched. ... The work makes a real contribution to the field (both theoretically and empirically), challenges stereotypes, and presents new areas of valuable research. (Nanette Funk coeditor of Gender Politics and Post-Communism: Reflections from Eastern Europe and the Former Sovie)
