Feminism and Yu: Feminist Magazines in Yugoslavia

How often are we able to pinpoint the exact event in time when we adopted a belief or a value? I expect not frequently, but I can see myself age 11, this would be mid-1980s, leafing through the magazine Svijet, getting an inkling that something was off and unfair and arbitrary about female lot.

Whether women’s position in South Slav societies has significantly improved since 1980s is certainly a conversation to be had. I think there is still so much left to do, especially in my own country, Montenegro. But to have all these roads paved by the women who came before us is half the job done. Feminism is here to stay.
