Program The journal Žena was initiated with the intention to cover all aspects of women's life. It brings articles of various content - those dealing with women's role in society, politics, culture or at home. The journal focuses on women from Serbia but offers a good insight into the women's question, in the widest sense, on a global scale.
Feminine The editor is a woman; the journal is of a general female type, considering that it deals with various questions concerning women and their lives, so it is difficult to narrow down its type. it could not be said that the journal is feminist in the real sense of the word, as the woman is usually placed in the traditional role of a mother, wife, daughter, or that of a Serbian woman. On the other hand, the emphasis is placed on women's education.
