Two editors of the Dutch Journal for Genderstudies spoke with pioneering politician and feminist activist Hedy d’Ancona and the Dutch Minister for Equal Opportunities and gender scholar Jet Bussemaker about the development of Dutch gender equality policies. They discuss how successful Dutch policies have been in changing the gendered division of labour and the organisation of the intimate sphere. D’Ancona and Bussemaker agree that feminist activists and scholars have been highly successful in gaining access to the state, pushing for policies, and legal change. Yet, they also express their disappointment about the persistent gendered division of labour in the Netherlands and the enduring absence of women in positions of power. They discuss current feminist activism and the future of gender equality in the Netherlands.
