Prime Minister Ana Brnabic attended today the opening of the Nobel Prize Salon at the Adligat Book Museum in honour of all female Nobel Prize laureates in literature, aimed at promoting the importance and role of women in society, as well as women’s contribution to literature.

On this occasion, Brnabic spoke about the constant struggle for equality and the great contribution of women to society.

The fight for equality is never-ending and we can say that we have come a long way, but there is a lot of struggle ahead of us too. Today we have chosen a topic that in a way shows it. Not only the theme of women’s creativity but also the theme of the Nobel Prize, the Prime Minister said.

She noted that the Nobel Prize is an indicator of how much women are still in a subordinate position and pointed to the fact that only 15 women received this award. It is encouraging that this number has been increasing over the past 30 years, Brnabic underlined.

The first woman to have received the Nobel Prize was Swedish writer Selma Lagerlof 110 years ago, and since then only 15 women have received this award.

The Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to a woman two years ago after 55 years, making her the third woman scientist to have received this award, and the current female Nobel Prize winner in Economic Sciences is the second woman to date to have received this prize.

According to her, the only area where there are more women than in the field of literature is the Nobel Peace Prize, which speaks volumes about how much common sense and wisdom women have to give to this world.

In addition to the Prime Minister, the meeting was also attended by Commissioner for Protection of Equality Brankica Jankovic, Head of the EU Delegation to Serbia Sem Fabrizi, as well as the ambassadors of the countries where Nobel Prize winners lived and worked: Sweden, Norway, United States, Germany, Austria, the United Kingdom and Canada.
