An exhibition on women’s rights in the cultural heritage of Serbia opened in Užice

Culture is important for all human beings because it is an area that knows no borders and provides people with the opportunity to achieve equality and set new standards, as Maga Magazinović from Užice once did, said Commissioner for the Protection of Equality, Brankica Janković, at the opening of the exhibition “Women’s rights in the cultural heritage of Serbia”, which was opened on the Sveti Sava Square in Užice. The exhibition was created in cooperation with the “Svetozar Marković” University Library, the Embassy of Great Britain, and the Commissioner for the Protection of Equality.

Užice has always been a city of brave people, visionaries, people with advanced ideas who were boldly ahead of their time, which is why it is good that the people of Užice, in the year when this city is the Serbian capital of culture, have the opportunity to see this unique exhibition that offers an insight into the entire wealth of topics that pervaded Serbian society and related to women’s rights in numerous areas, such as the military and culture, said the Commissioner. Although there have been major changes in social relations during all these years when it comes to equality, we see that women faced similar problems then and now, Janković stated.

At the opening of the exhibition, the Mayor of Užice, Dr. Jelena Raković Radivojević, the Ambassador of Great Britain, Edward Ferguson, Dr. Adam Sofronijević from the University Library, and the Director of the Historical Archive, Željko Marković, also spoke.
