Example text

A recent Hungarian study demonstrates clearly the continuing relevance and power of the national- or indeed in many cases the local- state as the address and the implementing authority for welfare claims (Szalai, 2005). The local state in Hungary (and elsewhere) has the power, not merely to distribute benefits in a social welfare regime based on residual needs rather than universal entitlements, but also to act as the arbiter of eligibility. In so doing, the state also structures social inequality.

This was a response to earlier ostensibly genderneutral political theory that rendered women invisible as political subjects and especially as political actors. Alternatively, this theory cast female political subjects as both lacking independence -led by their husbands in their voting behaviour - and as more conservative than men. In opposition to such views, feminist theorists argue that politics is not a discrete activity occurring somewhere 'out there', far from the arenas of women's daily lives, but indeed that these very lives, and in particular the gendered power relations inherent in all institutional structures, including those of the family, are deeply political, and hence that 'politics' occurs in all social relations in both public and private realms.

At this time, women activists lent the draft bill cautious support despite its shortcomings, out of a conviction that this would ensure the establishment of a permanent office responsible for gender equality issues. The Draft Act provided for the creation of Anti-Discrimination Offices at both central and local government levels. Although this Office would represent an institutionalized National Women's Machinery (albeit within the context of a single anti-discrimination body), the draft Act remained weak in that it lacked sanctions against non-compliance (Choluj, personal communication, 2003; Lohmann and Seibert, 2003: 26-7).
