This volume is a collection of research papers and a tribute to all those who starting with the beginning of the 20th century have contributed to put woman into a positive light; also a result of hard work of Gender Studies section of the Research Centre for Specialized Translation and Intercultural Communication (TUCEB) and the Centre for Research, Resources and European Studies (Institutional Partnership).
It consists of a collection of studies written by some specialists from different Romanian and foreign universities.
The articles reflect different researches which all can be included in generous field of Feminist studies and the majority of them are reproducing the communications presented at the conference Modern Trends in Communication and Education and Translation – Bucharest June 2012 (attended by more than 140 participants at the Faculty of Technological Equipment, TUCEB, Bucharest - Romania).
All the articles have in common a great admiration for the courage of those who have fight and made possible that women of contemporary society have access to all positions in politics, science and art and a keen interest for the actual status of female scientists and researchers.
The studies are published in four different sections, aspect which proves the diversity of the centre activity. The first one is dedicated to political and socio-cultural aspects interfering with feminist approach, the second analysis the educational frame in which a correct gender perspective develops, the third section proposes some case studies and the forth is related to (applied) linguistics.
One of the main purposes of all our research was to demonstrate how actual and diverse the field of feminine studies is in postmodern society in Romania and in other Balkan countries. Women contribution to contemporary civilization is still judged by postmodern audience and critics and the dispute concerning a correct gender perspective is still going on. Nowadays when some of former scandalous subjects (homosexuality, race differences) for are viewed in different way, in many countries women still have to fight for equal position, when in other they consider that their position has been the same since ever.
We hope that this volume will contribute in a way or another to help our students, people in general to understand the contribution of Romanian researchers and the level of feminist studies in Romania.
