the professional, cultural and tourist exploration
of the role of women’s literature
in the European history, identity and values!”
The Women Writers Route reveals life and creativity of women writers at the turn of the 19th and 20th century. It was a time when women started entering cultural, artistic and social life in greater numbers and their voices could no longer be ignored. The route links symbolic and physical points of their lives and takes visitors to an exciting journey through real and imaginary spaces while discovering their life stories, literary creativity, linguistic diversity and their social struggle for equality and human rights. Through different activities it enhances visibility, significance, contribution to and reputation of women writers in European culture.
Join the Women Writers Route and help us shed a new light on the valuable contribution of women writers to European history and culture. Contact us and become a friend or a member of the network, support women literary heritage and enjoy a range of unique activities and benefits.
