International Women's Day: Macedonian women honored in 'time travel' exhibition

International Women

Skopje, 7 March 2018 (MIA) - The first-ever non-museum exhibition of artifacts, traditional dresses and installations about Macedonian women was unveiled Wednesday in Skopje to mark the International Women's Day .

The show for the first time attempts to portray the women of Macedonia through a time travel of sorts, organizers say.

The Macedonian women are presented through eight archaeological showpieces dubbed 'Prehistoric Ladies of Macedonia' dating to 6th millennium BC, up until the mid-4th millennium BC. There are also six historical info-screens presenting 'the women-fighters for statehood and sovereignty', and 'women-rebels and revolutionaries'.

The exhibit also features five showpieces that portray Macedonian women through folklore artifacts, through items showing the peak of beauty, graciousness and dominance of the women of the 20th century, most notably including traditional dresses.

The event is organized by Skopje City Moll in cooperation with the Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Macedonian Struggle and the Ensemble Macedonia. ba/16:28
