The workshop weaves together stories of amazing Serbian women who dared to be different, who dared to dream and fight for what they wanted, who knew how to say no, and believed in justice and equality.
If we try to think of only one word to describe Serbian history, it would definitely be - Fight.
Fight for ourselves and our beliefs.
That's exactly what all of our women did.
Some of them fought to survive, some fought to save the family, some of them fought for education and new ideas...
Here are just some of the things we’ll go over:
How the best diplomat in Serbia was a woman, left alone to rule after the tragic death of her husband.
How one Serbian woman talked about the importance of education and work before Klara Cetkin.
How some of the most important buildings in Belgrade are the work of a woman.
The Serbian Sapho – she got her nickname because of lyrical songs and open eroticism… and she was also the first Serbian world-traveler.
Female warriors that had to “trick” their way into the army…
The woman that went through a real torture after becoming the first woman to receive a doctorate at the University of Belgrade in 1922…
How Mileva, Einstein’s wife, might’ve been the biggest rip-off story in the last century…
Also, we’d love for you to hear your stories about the women who inspired you the most!
And remember that stories about ordinary women, our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, neighbours are equally important.
