Women in the traditional culture of the Bizeljsko and Kozjansko regions
The position of a woman in the Bizeljsko and Kozjansko regions in the first half of the 20th century depended on her position in the family and household, and this position was directly related to the virilocal residence, property and legal relations, and to the system of authority in the traditional village society. The clear divisions by sex and age in the family as well as in society were very significant in this sense. Women were under the massive pressure of social control. A girl`s or woman`s future also depended on the social and property differences.

Odsev pravnega položaja in življenjskih razmer žensk v slovenskih ljudskih družinskih baladah
<p>The paper researches the individual and typical phenomena of women`s legal status and their material, social and emotional living conditions as reflected in individual Slovene popular family ballads. The author's primary focus is on the relationships and the roles woman had in the family (daughter, bride, daughter-in-law, mother-in-law, wife, mother, sister, child-murderess), deriving from the individual family relationships in the past, and she establishes the changes of women`s status in the course of time.
<p>The article explores images of sub-Saharan African women. These images can be seen as the sign of the times and markers of the colonial expansion, as well as powerful signs of the colonizers` own insecurities and feelings of lack (especially when it comes to sexuality). Through these representations, one can see how perceptions are also changing - more recently, into the images where women are increasingly depicted as independent, outspoken, and strong.
