In the countries of the Eastern Europe populism and anti-gender movements are on the rise. Using Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights as an instrument to mobilize in a public debate, right wing populists contribute to the global backlash of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights and minimize the progress that countries have made in this area.

In this work, through studying the differences in the structure of negative reactions against progressive values, namely Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in Eastern Europe, the imperfection of Backlash theory is shown, new conceptual approaches are also proposed that are intended to give an objective reflection of reality and be useful in policy-making.
