Slovakia

Slovak Republic (SK) represents a parliamentary democracy of the central European region, with a population of 5.4 million and Bratislava as the capital. The nation was created in 1918 as Czechoslovakia. Women suffrage was enacted in 1920. After World War II, the country became a part of the Communist Bloc. As the women's movement was subject to control by the Communist Party, the second wave of feminism never took place. Transition to democracy occurred in 1989.
