Promotion of the book ‘#ZeneBiH’, written by Amila Hrustic Batovanja, Masha Durkalic and Hatidza Gusic, will be organized in the American Corner in Mostar today at 18:00 hrs.

The book ‘#ZeneBiH’ is an artistic, activist and research initiative that is comprised of biographies of more than 50 women from Bosnia and Herzegovina who have broken stereotypes and advocated women’s rights and emancipation.

This is a book about first female artists, writers, poets, social workers, national heroines, directors, scientists, musicians, doctors, activists, professors, and other exceptional women from Bosnia and Herzegovina, who inspired the authors of the book to explore their lives and make their contributions to society more visible.

The book celebrates women who decided to pursue education even when women were not allowed to do so, who were (and are) ambassadors of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s art and culture in the world, the women who promoted women’s rights at a time when they did not even exist, women who gave their lives in the fight against fascism, women who have achieved worldwide fame in their respective fields of work, and those who were or are one of the greatest treasures of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
