Mission Statement

ProFemina was founded during the Yugoslav war, to express pacifist ideology and tolerance; to fight nationalism, especially Serbian nationalism; and to rebuild communications among women from the former Yugoslavia and in the Balkans. Its mission is to familiarize women in the region with current Western feminist thought and trends in women's studies, and to promote local competence in arts and literature, as well as in academic disciplines.

History and Activities

ProFemina has been publishing quarterly since 1994. It is the only journal in today's Serbia and Monenegro to publish essays and studies on women and visual arts, architecture, music, dance, along with original literary contributions mainly by younger anti-nationalist authors, and studies from women's history, theory, and criticism. A translation of the Women's WORLD book, The Power of the Word II: Women's Voices and the New European Order, will be Issue #27, to be followed by an "ex-YU" issue, now in preparation, and a special Albanian-Serbian issue. In 1996, it also founded the ProFemina Literary Award in memory of Biljana Jovanovic, an exceptional writer and peace activist, who died at the age of forty-three in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The prize-winning book is published by ProFemina. Winners so far have been Marija Ivanic, Mirjana Stefanovic, and Ljubica Arsic.
