Report on the selection process by the Lithuanian FRAGEN team
For the selection of the texts I chose four experts that are knowledgeable of various gender issues and feminism. Two of these experts - Jolanta Reingardė and Solveiga Daugirdaitė are from academic sector, Marija Aušrinė Pavilionienė is Member of Parliament (previously professor of Vilnius University Gender Studies Centre) and Margarita Jankauskaitė, who represents NGO sector on gender equality.
The biggest attention was paid to the texts chosen by two experts. There were decided to pay attention to the priority point, to the relevance to project goals and to the diversity of approaches.
Also experts decided to locate in to the database texts written in English if there are same texts written in Lithuanian and English, thus for the final list instead of book Moterys Lietuvos visuomenėje, written in Lithuanianwas selected bookWomen in Lithuanian society and instead of the book (Ne)apmokamas darbas: šeimai palanki darbo aplinka ir lyčių lygybė Europoje(written in Lithuanian) - Between Paid and Unpaid Work: Family Friendly Policies and Gender Equality in Europe.
We found many texts on gender issues and we expect the project will continue and database will be annexed with new actual texts.
