Slavenka Drakulić’s commentary on Tportal entitled “Women’s Party That Hates Women” refers to the electoral program of Women’s Democratic Party, concluding that it does not differ in any way from other parties’ programs, seeing as it does not take into account the specific needs of women.
“Women in Croatia have certain specific needs and problems. That does not mean they need a party of their own, but it does mean that every party should seriously consider these issues. Especially the one that emphasizes women in their name. There is no doubt that such a party – even with the lack of consciousness on the specific needs of women in society – would contribute to raising awareness on these issues. And even if it did not achieve great success, it might at least shake up the prevailing belief that women have no special privileges. However, they should have them.”
