Gender awareness and the national machineries in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe

The countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) saw fundamental changes to their political and social systems towards the end of the twentieth century. In the CEE region, we not only need gender awareness but awareness of the role and importance of national machineries for the advancement of women. A survey of the national machineries for women in the CEE countries reveals some important features of the processes affecting the establishment and functioning of national machineries for women. In the CEE countries, the tasks of governmental structures should be given attention in order to build upon the advances made in mainstreaming gender in the policy-making and implementational structures of government. Considerations of security and economic restructuring have been prioritized in policy-making processes, to the detriment of issues of equal opportunities and equal rights for women and men.
