Abstract [en]

The paper explores how the complexity of Roma women’s status is addressed in Szines Gyöngyök (SZGY) a Roma women’s NGO in Hungary:

Firstly, by analysing the ways in which Roma women’s multiple marginalities are constructed within their own communities and the broader society as well as in the public and private spheres. This approach highlights the workings of gender and ethnic discrimination and reveals the importance of maternalism as a counterhegemonic perspective for Roma women.

Secondly by investigating to what degree Roma women’s NGOs elaborate their programmes and initiatives in reference to broader gender equality frameworks. What are the economic dynamisms and dependencies behind NGO-isation and how do dependencies influence the processes of ideation of gender equality? Most importantly, the paper explores whether the ideation processes are empowering, participatory, bottom-up processes growing out of the culturally and socially specific conditions of the NGOs’ constituencies or are donor driven.
