Zofka Kveder a central figure in the ex Yugoslavia women’s rights movement. Moreover, she established many contacts with feminists from various countries of Central and South-East Europe.
By the year 1900, she already made it to Prague, where she published her literary debut The Mystery of a Woman. She depicted violence against women within the proletariat, but also more subtle mechanisms of constraint, such as those of middle-class pre-arranged marriages. Her images of proletarian women, prostitutes, and emancipated women who didn’t want to deny their own sexuality upset her contemporaries. Even though there is a number of artistic modes of expression in the texts many of her male and female contemporaries denied the collection artistic value.
