Sources for the history of women: Diaries, memoirs, letters, belles-lettres (From the shadow of history: Women in Bulgarian society and culture)
Original title: Извори за историята на жените: дневници, спомени, писма, белетристика
Category: Women's history
The book includes diaries, memoirs, correspondence and belles-lettres, covering the period between 1870s and 1950s — a time of dynamic political, economic, social and cultural changes affecting all strata of modernizing traditional (rural, agricultural) societies in the Balkan region. In the process of modernization, male and female citizens are integrated in different ways. The resolution of the so-called women's issue — the role and place of women in the Modern Period — gradually leads to equal access of women to education, administrative positions and prestigious professions, political voting and participation in the parliamentary life of the countries. The book offers source material for researchers of women's education and emancipation, as well as for readers interested in the entangled history of Bulgaria, the Balkans and Europe.
