Marija Jurić Zagorka was an extremely important person in Zagreb’s history and the documents related to her personal and work life represent an important contribution to culture. Her work played an important part in popularising female-related culture and emancipation and feminist ideas which affected the position of women in the 20th c. society, but also helped in further developing journalism as a profession.

She was the first Croatian female political journalist, who took part in the establishment of Croatian Journalists’ Association and advocated working and social rights of female journalists.
