This lecture aims to provide an overview of the general feminist movement in North Macedonia, focusing on the 1991 period, after independence from Yugoslavia. It focuses on the following questions: how have policies regarding gender equality changed during this time, and to what extent were they affected by feminist organizations? What role did the government play in reducing or promoting the rights of women on a state level? What effect did the local equivalent of the #metoo movement (#segakazhuvam) have on raising awareness and changing policies?
