Проблемы повседневности и ментальности, женская история, cтали предметом специального научного исследования в молдавской исторической науке на рубеже XX–XXI вв. Долгое время данная тематика оставалась за пределами фундаментальных исторических исследований и до настоящего времени с трудом осваивается в академической среде. (At the turn of the twenty first century, concepts such as «mundane activities», the «prevailing mind-set» and the «history of women», have been in the midst of a specific scientific scrutiny, in the context of Moldovan historical science. The given issue has remained, for a long while, outside the scope of historical research. An outright twist of the scientific prospect, that came across in the early 90’s, led to the confrontation of the younger generation of Moldovan historians to a new, pro-Western approach of historical science. Heretofore, the matter of «women’s history» has encountered several difficulties in assimilating an academic environment, notably due to a largely deceitful assertion concerning its scientific «scantiness»/deficiency. According to the adherents of this view, «women’s history» bears a declaratory character, aiming for a persistent promotion of the feminist movement, thus concealing a political mandate for gender equality progression. Above all, the political sphere (notably politicians or leading political parties) has particularly speculated on issues relating to the legal and social status of women or on women’s demands for equality with men, leading to extensive party populism, especially around elections. Unequivocally, considering the specific case of Moldova, neither the constitution, nor any other current government declaration renders at this point the real situation in the matter of gender equality. Subsidiarity, none of the earlier mentioned legal instruments contributes to the resolution of women’s issues. Since a predominant part of the Moldovan historical heritage is defined by the European culture, a comparative approach to historical research as well as the use of the «new social history» method, will allow an emphatic highlight of Moldova’s historical events. The creation and the insertion of new historical trends represent an irreversible process, which is strongly substantiated by the internationalisation of science. The study of «women’s history» requires an integrated approach, conducted with a specific contrivance regarding the interpretation and documentary presentation methodology. It bears an interdisciplinary nature, as its research scope includes subjects such as history, law, ethnology or social demography. Our persuasion regarding the subject of women’s history, is that it primarily precludes from asymmetrical interpretation of historical events; further, it tends to the emphasis of political and cultural identities, furthermore, it allows the enlargement of the research scope, seeing that it includes the study of «mundane activities», «spirituality» and «the use of personality»; finally, it avoids the politicization and dissimulation of history. The study of «women’s history» is believed to remedy the plane political perception of history, directing researchers towards full anthropological discernment.)
