Hungary -Trade unions and women -March 25, 2014

In an interview the story is sketched out of women activists in the country’s trade unions history. Women entered the workforce in large numbers after World War II. Many countries had been devastated by war, and many able-bodied men had died as soldiers and forced labourers. Another reason was ideology. Communism emphasised full employment. Women in the region would eventually participate in the labour market in rates higher than any other developed part of the world.
