It has been argued that changes in funding sources and structures have greatly affected contours of Czech women’s organizing. Authors analyzed the relationship between organized activity and grassroots support in the postsocialist Czech Republic. They suggested that despite the recent privileging of the formalization of organizations and networks by donor agencies, informalrelations and personal connections continue to be crucial to the success of both NGOs and informal feminist groups.
