Women Writers Route
The International Foundation Forum of Slavic Cultures is the initiator and organizer of the new cultural route of the Council of Europe, dedicated to the European women writers. Women writers preempted gender quality, as we know it and respect today, set by Universal Declaration of Human Rights, by the European Convention on Human Rights and recently, by the PEN Charter and Women’s Manifesto.
The Women Writers Route will bring into the limelight the outstanding life stories and literary works, which marked the struggle for human and women's rights in the 20th century. Their uniqueness and role in the history and cultural heritage of the entire Slavic and European region was important, yet never truly recognized.
The Women Writers Route is an extremely narrative way of revealing their life and creativity. It links the symbolic and physical points of their lives and work between museums, memorial rooms, reading rooms, public monuments, cafes and other public spaces. In addition to the scientific and cultural field, the road will also enrich local communities and tourist attractions, creative industry, gastronomy and cultural tourism.
