A Path of Their Own

xx Trip with book presentation

In Slovenian and English
15/12 €

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

The book will be presented on a bus ride to the Karst region, followed by guided tours through Sežana and Divača with visits to sites connected with the former Karst quarry workers, today’s women stonemasons and the actress Ita Rina. The trip will conclude at the Karst edge with a panoramic view of the Gulf of Trieste and the paths of Slovenian maids and publicists, especially Zofka Kveder
