Significance for science
The existing findings of the research contributed to: • The research placed the category of gender in the corpus of Slovenian historical knowledge for the first time and thus set foundations for synthesis of women’s history in Slovenian territory. Many of its findings were presented on a scientific conference »Novi prispevki k pravni in politični zgodovini žensk, Ljubljana, Dvorana Zemljepisnega muzeja, Geografski inštitut Antona Melika ZRC SAZU, 1. dec. 2011. Ljubljana, 2011 and will be published in a special monograph. • Its interdisciplinary approach is a novelty: the collaboration of lawyers and historians in a jointed historiographical, sociological and philosophical approach; • A systematic collection and analysis of legal sources contributed to the development of legal history; it placed legal history in the context of political history. • It shed light on the subject of women’s criminality and at the same time placed itself within current developments in gender history, which deal with the formation of gender roles and their transgressions. Generally this topic received little (or no) attention within Slovene historiography in the past. The current project provided first data on an important aspect of criminality in the past, i.e. features of the relationship of criminal legal system towards women’s criminality on one side, and on characteristics of murderesses, especially offenders committing infanticide, and also offenders committing abortion, and the legal system’s treatment of female offenders on the other. Each of these subjects represents a novelty in Slovene legal history. The project provided a fresh insight into the operation of criminal legal system and its relationship towards female offenders, and shed light on one of the important viewpoints of the position of women in historical perspective. • The research has contributed to innovative methodological approaches in historiography; the software PAJK has been used for the first time for the analysis of historical material, and social networks in Slovenia have been identified on the example of editors of the periodical Slovenka. The research combined qualitative and quantitative methods (analysis of literary sources, collection of crime statistic data and census survey). • Legal and archival sources were systematically examined for the first time (funds of Ministry of the Interior and laws dealing with the position of female domestic servants, funds dealing with women societies and charity societies, court cases in the Ljubljana country court and the district courts in Celje and Maribor etc.). In order to fill the lacunae in the political and legal history of women in Slovenia, we also visited archives abroad (Arhiv Jugoslavije, Istorijski arhiv Beograd, VI. Archivio centrale – Rim, Archivio di Stato di Trieste etc.) • The research contributed to the development of historical science by introducing the comparative approach. By placing Slovene women’s history into comparative reading networks shortfalls and potential surplus value in science at European level have been detected; data have been acquired which served and (can serve in the future) as a basis for applying for projects at European level (for example calls for applications ERC and HERA).
Significance for the country
• The research contributed to elimination of direct and indirect gender discrimination and promoted gender equality, since it pointed to cases of successful implementation of legal norms which have contributed to implementation of equal opportunities. • It can contribute to creating gender equality and to meeting of needs of various social groups, Slovenia has pledged to gender equality with its Resolution on the National Programme for Equal Opportunities for Women and Men 2005-2013) »It is of key importance that the gender equality perspective gains its place in all relevant research fields and scientific disciplines and that gender is mainstreamed in all policies and programmes and in organizations of science and research«. • The research is a contribution to analysis of equality in Slovenian research corpus. • An important aim of the research was forming of a more equal collective memory (women have until recently only identified themselves with non-presence). • The research is a significant contribution to a better understating of the past. • It determined in detail normative mechanisms which hinder gender equality and by doing that it contributed to their overcoming. • The research contributed to lasting development, as the results are associated with the understanding of the process of democratization and implementation of the equal opportunity policy as those findings were presented in numerous media and had contributed to awareness raising and informing of general public. • The research contributed to social cohesiveness, for it systematically reviewed mechanisms of discrimination, which was undoubtedly in Slovenia’s national interest. • By publishing articles and monographs the research contributed to the change of social roles and promoted gender equality. The research encouraged democratic awareness and influenced the development of equal opportunity values both in local and national community. • The conclusions of the research determined factors, which have influenced the formation of norms/standards and democratization and thus contributed to shaping of equal opportunity policies, of a modern and democratic state and to reduce social exclusion and social endangerment.
