In this chapter, the author discusses gender roles in postwar Poland. In this period, argues the author, Polish women were expected to take up both the economic and the reproductive reconstruction of the country. This resulted in a redefinition of gender roles aimed at equality between men and women and accompanied by a pro-natalist population policy. The result emphasized by the author is that the main issue was a redefinition of the tasks and roles of women, while images of masculinity were hardly discussed.
