This paper uses the 1999 reform that abolished the ERA at age 60 for women ...

At the end of World War II, 40% of the pre-arranged Soviet occupation zone in Germany was under the control of the Allied Expeditionary Force. This occupation was very short-lived and the Red Army gained full control of the Soviet zone less than two months after the German surrender. However, this paper shows that the brief Allied occupation systematically increased opposition to the budding ...
