My research started about Lithuania’s, my home country's historical event, fight for independence back in 1991. Being suppressed as a nation and not being able to speak your mother tongue language freely, follow Lithuanian traditions and celebrate holidays affected all people at that time. Gaining independence back was a big win and still is, unfortunately influences of Soviet Union are still felt to this day. Moreover, independence enabled women to stand their ground more firmly and start another fight for equality.
