A book exploring the part played by women in the anti-Communist dissent has been launched in Prague. Entitled Bytová revolta: Jak ženy dělaly disent (Apartment Revolution: How Woman Made the Dissent), it features profiles of 21 women who were not afraid to stand up to the Communist authorities in the normalisation period of the 1970 and 1980s.
Among those who attended the launch were then dissidents Marta Kubišová, Dana Němcová and Kamila Bendová.
One of the organisers of the Women in Dissent project, Marcela Linková, said there was a perception that the women had supported male dissidents but in fact they had carried out the same activities as men.
