Democratic backsliding and the backlash against women’s rights: Understanding the current challenges for feminist politics
In this paper, we propose a conceptual framework to discuss two interrelated realms: backsliding on gender equality policies and the emerging political space for feminist responses to this backsliding. We illustrate our framework with empirical observations from three Central and Eastern European countries: Croatia, Hungary, and Poland. We aim to contribute to an understanding of the gendered aspects of de-democratization and the functioning of illiberal democracies.

It contends that this tension has led to a proliferation of rights’ statuses for migrant women who are exposed to intimate partner violence.
