The author comments on the interview with Hedy D’Ancona and Jet Bussemaker. She draws attention to the time period between their times in power, which is underreported in this interview. D’Ancona presided over the development of emancipation policy, while Bussemaker became a member of the government after a period of degeneration. During the 1990s, many of the institutions established by D’Ancona were abolished, and, during the first decades of this century, some ministers were of the opinion that emancipation policy was no longer necessary. The author argues that Bussemaker, when she came to power, was severely hampered in her ambitions by a lack of tools to accomplish them.
