Abstract : The collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989 was the visual sign to the world illustrating the internal collapse of the economic, political, and social systems of the German Democratic Republic. Creating a new economic base from the ruins of the collapsed GDR system is proving to be an extremely hard task for the governments of Germany and the European Community, as well as the German citizens. Particularly hard hit by the economic reforms are the women of the east. The changes in economic structure have coincided with social change which have brought unemployment and loss of social benefits for GDR women.
