What does my grandmother have in common with other women from Yugoslavia? What do I have in common with her? What do we as feminists today have in common with feminists from Yugoslavia? How do we embrace our unique yugofeminist past to imagine a possible feminist future for our region? This essays opens these questions up, through diving through family memories, connecting them with the key motivations and issues that brought hundreds of feminists together in Belgrade for the Drug-ca zena conference in Belgrade in 1078 and trying to bring those intimate and public histories to the present time, with the hope of imagining a possible future starting from there. Forty years after Drug-ca zena happened, when most social movements are being commodified by the states or the market, when most systems of care are being privatized and the ecosystem is slowly collapsing, it is needed to look back at our feminist legacy: for knowledge, strength, better understanding of ourselves and the systems of oppression we live in.
