A Path of Their Own

Book launch trip

In Slovenian and English
10 / 7 € 

The travel guide A Path of Their Own: 25 Excursions into Women’s History focuses on women artists, politicians, lawyers, teachers, doctors, and entrepreneurs who have paved the way to professional life for women on Slovenian territory. It presents women revolutionaries who had fought for a decent life, and the first women to make a living by doing paid work as factory workers, farmers and maids. At the same time, the guide invites us to visit the places where they had lived and worked. 

The bilingual Slovenian and English guide was published simultaneously with the guides to Croatia and Northern Macedonia. The editors and co-authors will present the books on a bus ride to the Karst region, followed by guided tours through Divača, Kopriva, and Sežana with visits to places connected with Ita Rina, Branka Jurca and the Karst quarry workers, as well as contemporary women stonemasons. The trip will conclude at the Karst edge with a panoramic view of the Gulf of Trieste and the paths of Slovenian maids and women publicists. 

Tour guides: Manca G. Renko, Tea Hvala, and Jasmina Jerant.

The guide to Croatia is going to be presented by Tara Gudović, the guide to North Macedonia by Ivana Dragšić.
