This exhibition is dedicated to women that have led small (and big) fights for their rights in post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina and have rebuilt the war-torn society. For the exhibition, the biography and important messages of twenty women were selected. Women who survived rape, domestic violence, lost family members, saved neighbors and unknown persons, women who did not stay passive, but stood up, fought for their rights and the rights of others, empowered women, believe in equality of all and solidarity. The twenty women shown in the exhibition are from all places, different ages, courses of lives and different background. Through the exhibition, the organizers want to highlight the specific experiences of women during and after the war, add important aspects to the mainly male dominated ethno-centric narratives of war and peace.

More than 40 visitors were at the opening of the exhibition and the exhibition was open to the public till 10 October.
