Abstract
The purpose of this thesis is to examine the underlying tendencies of the Hungarian nationalism in relation to women's rights.

The purpose of this thesis is to examine the underlying tendencies of the Hungarian nationalism in relation to women's rights. Thus, the study aims to analyse which actual effects these nationalist tendencies have on women's rights. This is done using feminist critical ideology analysis. The thesis focuses on women's right to protection from discrimination in relation to family, work and political participation, as stipulated in the UN Women's rights Convention. Through analysis of the actual content of the government’s report to the UN Women's rights Commission together with a contextual analysis, it is possible to outline the Hungarian government's impact on women’s rights. To give the thesis a further depth the theory and practice of the Hungarian nationalism is examined from two different feminist theories; standpoint feminist theory and postmodern feminist theory. Though the theories assume different problem formulations, the study shows that both of the theories indicate a decline regarding women's rights in the areas mentioned. Standpoint feminist theory criticizes the fact that women's experiences have not been taken into account in the formation of the nationalist politics. The postmodern feminism is critical towards the narrow definition of family and women demonstrated in the report. Based on these theories, it is possible to distinguish a sharp criticism regarding the impact of the Hungarian nationalism on women's rights. The nationalist government of Hungary has failed to take women’s experience into account and if women are seen as actors, it is in the narrow sense of reproductive actors and as mothers. (Less)
