Abstract Unlike in most Western contexts, women’s emancipation in communist Romania was a top down processes, part of the social change platform imposed by the Communist Party. And unlike the Romanian political regimes that preceded communism, it was justified by the latter as “natural”, with women presented as integrated in all everyday life activities. Permeating throughout all layers of society, this emancipation was performed through propaganda in the written press and cinematography, as the Party used varied means to promote a positive imaginary of women in communism. However, the difference between the Party’s propaganda on women and the reality of women during communism was not only striking but had a significant impact on women’s status and role in Romania even after the fall of the communist regime.
