The multimedia web project, called “From 5 to 95”, shows women and girls talking about what it means to be a woman in Croatia today and how their lives differ from those of their mothers, grandmothers and grand-grandmothers.
The project was presented at SDP headquarters where the authors Arijana Lekić-Fridrih and Andrea Kaštelan were hosted by SDP leader Peđa Grbin.
Lekić-Fridrih said that the project had been launched in 2016 and that 400 accounts of women from across Croatia had been filmed. “We wanted to knock down the walls and initiate dialogue so that there would no longer be girls and women feeling alone in their own situations,” she said, adding that the idea for the project came from “the fact that every woman in Croatia is in some sort of conflict with society.”
The online project shows women describing one year of their life, from 5 to 95. It provides documentary accounts of the lives of Croatian women in the 21st century in which women talk about their personal experience, and often about violence and discrimination they have encountered.
