Founders

The founding meeting took place in Dubrovnik, June 7-9, 1991.  Slavenka Drakulic opened the first plenary: We are meeting here a year and a half after the crucial changes in Eastern Europe…time enough to recognize the tendencies and changes especially in regard to women.  What happened to them?
