Sex and Solidarity, 1980-1990

Abstract

Solidarity was the most important attempt to transform Communist Poland since World War II. Although it was a liberation movement, it did not initially touch on sexual politics. However, when the movement was made illegal in 1981, it found its most important ally in the Roman Catholic Church. As a result, Solidarity was drawn into sexual politics, assuming a stance similar to that of the Roman Catholic Church, alienating some supporters and puzzling others. Given Solidarity's illegal status, it was necessary to take positions that would not estrange its important supporter.
