My doctoral thesis deals with the possibilities of changing the prevailing gender order through focusing on women's collective actions.In certain periods of time and under certain conditions, women's protest takes collective and organised forms.I focus on one such period in post-war Western Europe: the 1970s and the 1980s.As empirical case-studies are analysed the women's movements in Finland and West Germany.
