Marija Juric Zagorka was the first female political journalist in Southeastern Europe, as well as a celebrated author of socio-historical romance novels. This lecture explores her subversive work’s impact on the development of women’s rights in the region by focusing on her novel series The Witch of Grič. The Witch of Grič introduces Nera Ratkay, whose fight for the liberation of women wrongly accused of witchcraft reflects Zagorka’s own ideals of women’s solidarity.
