Author(s): Claudia Snochowska-Gonzalez, Claudia Ramme, Jennifer Ramme

In: Praktyka teoretyczna, No 30, 2018, pp. 75-100

This work comprises almost 100 interviews with local coordinators of Polish Women’s Strike (OSK) groups throughout the country designed to reveal the people behind a countrywide network that organized the successful 2016 protests against attempts to tighten the already restrictive abortion law. The authors also explore what drove them to activism and how they understood the concept of an ‘ordinary woman’.
