“Museum of women’s stories” – illustration of the position and role of women in Macedonia

Publication “Museum of women’s stories”, produced and published by the Macedonian organisation Lokomotiva”, marks the end of a 3-year-long art research project within the Decentralized cooperation programme between the French Region Normandy and Macedonia, coordinated by ALDA.


The publication is a collection of texts about the role of women in history, socio-cultural and political life. The authors share their views, position and status of women in the past and today, offering their unique approach about the topic.

The project “Museum of women’s stories” was dealing with the historical and contemporary role of women in the socio-political context in the country. The main goal of the project was to discover and deconstruct the historical facts behind the existing specific social relations and dynamics as well as ideological and discursive apparatus, and their participation and influence in the creation of cultural meanings and the emancipation of women from past to present.

Lokomotiva – Centre for New Initiatives in Arts and Culture Skopje has been part of the Decentralized cooperation programme between the Lower Normandy Region – France and the Republic of Macedonia since its beginning in 2006. The project “Museum of women’s stories” was realized in the programme cycle of 2013 -2016.

ALDA is the lead coordinator of the Decentralized cooperation between Lower Normandy and Republic of Macedonia since the beginning of the cooperation in 2006.  

The publication “Museum of women’s stories” is available for download here.
