MILICA
balkan magazine
for daring women attitudes

_______

Milica is a typical Balkan name that refers to a dear and fragile woman. Overcoming the binary classifications, the choice of this name reflects the need to exceed the banality of interpretation. Tenderness and courage are not opposites.

_______

Milica is a women’s magazine. However, what makes us feel cramped is the concept which subordinates female to consumerist principles, imposes ideals of beauty and introduces instructions for Cinderella. We make a breakthrough toward all fronts.

_______

We promote diverse women principles, regardless of education or religion, ethnicity and class affiliation. We celebrate equality in every possible sense.

We tend to re-think the historical, political and ideological context, thus break the existing taboos. One can and should talk about anything; and speak aloud.

_______

We are devoted to pervasive, exciting and reasoned opinions, which originate from the precise allocation of the relevant issues, them being both global and local.

We do not intend to kneel before the traditional models and social norms. Our choice is to strive towards recontextualization and re-evaluation on all fronts.

_______

We actively participate in shaping a space of boldness, equality and freedom!

We initiate connections, constructive discussions and fellowship. With this idea in mind, we invite you to join the circle that develops on the foundations established above.
