In this episode, Lithuanian author, historian and activist Dalia Leinarte and Susanne Hamscha, EUR Diversity Coordinator, talk about feminism and women's rights in the Soviet Union and the Post-Soviet space. Dalia experienced the former Soviet Union as an insider and and met the restoration of the Independence of Lithuania as a young woman. Dalia interviewed a large number of women and wrote the oral history book, Adopting and Remembering Soviet Reality: Life Stories of Lithuanian Women, 1945–1970 (Rodopi, 2010), which is referenced in this episode. Dalia is a current member of the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). She held a Fulbright scholar grant in 2002-03.

Please note: Dalia uses both "LGBTIQ" and "LBTIQ" in the podcast as the acronym LBTIQ is officially used in the context of CEDAW.
