Change in Attitudes Beliefs and Practices Regarding Gender

The major historical periods for Czech society are (1) traditional village life, up until World War II and the Communist revolution of 1948, (2) Communism (1948-89), with collectivization of farms, a planned economy and pronatalist government policies, and active undermining of older Catholic/Christian or "bourgeois" attitudes and customs, and (3) the period of privatization, liberalization, and social differentiation since the fall of Communism in 1989.

See Salzmann and Scheufler (1974) for a description of social relations in a traditional Czech village and some of the changes that came with collectivization, Nash (2002) for a review of attitudes towards women and feminism in different periods, and Vecernik and Mateju (1999) for an overview of changes in Czech society during the first decade after the end of Communism.
