so uni is out for me until the end of september woo hoo 5 whole months off i hear you cry....instead i have to start work on my 10,000 word dissertation. I have decided to do some primary research into the discrimination against romani women in eastern europe, notably because it will mean i get to spend time back in Hungary!! so i was just wondering if anyone else had done anything to do with romani women or knew of any good books on the subject

One tried to pick my pocket in Rome. My girlfriend at the time caught her, snatched her hand, and growled at her: "I'll break it!" The gypsy, and her chorus of howling distractors, fled...

The romani are often discriminated against, IMO, because their historic choice of occupation, which has been crime. Of course, that alone doesn't cause discrimination. Look at the Jews in Europe. For centuries they were legitimate businessmen, bankers, doctors and so on. Yet still, when a demagogue needed a scapegoat, they were singled out.

Sorry I can't be of more help, beergal. Good luck on the thesis, and share some of the interesting tidbits you find with us...
