This weekend from 4th until 6th of October, the workshop Gendered Perspectives of History took place in Mavrovo in close cooperation between ForumZFD and ANIM.

History teachers were discussing and analyzing images of gender as they are portrayed in history textbooks in North Macedonia. Classical images of manhood in militarized histories such as those of heroes, warriors, rulers and emperors were opposed to women as mothers, wives, victims etc.

This project opened space for more content from Social history in history textbooks as opposed to military and political history which dominates the teaching of history at the moment.
