What you'll do

Today the gender equality for modern women in many ways is taken for granted. The struggle for equality has a long history and it seems even nowadays in many spheres of social life is still incomplete. The aim of the walking tour is to reveal historical figures that history books often forget, but who have made the live of women far more mundane, putting them out of the household everyday life. Bulgarian women’s history has its bright personalities thanks to their adamant spirit and far-sighted vision for the development of Bulgarian society – they opened the gates of Sofia University and higher education for women, and then prove that women are efficient to practice their professions and to be leaders.
In 1908 the first female labour law is adopted, but the question stays: “Is this legislation in favor of women’s labour rights or protects male jobs positions?” Who are the remarkable Bulgarian women who left memorable traces in the area of education, legislation, art, creativity, construction, transport? Who are the leading female characters in our history? Answers to these questions can be obtained with a unique historical walking tour in the footsteps of extraordinary Bulgarian.

I have a master degree on Women's History and Gender Studies.I have been involved in working for achieving gender equality at different levels.A few years ago a friend of mind asked me to prepare a Bulgarian Women's History Tour in Sofia for the participants of a huge international conference in Sofia.This experience made me think that more people should be introduced to the Women's and Gender History in that way.The last couple of years I've been organising such tours for different international and local events in Sofia. I think it will be good to share this experience with airbnb community.

Lora’s walking tour on Bulgarian women and the history of their rights and roles in society was excellent. Lora is a gender expert, political scientist, and consultant on women and youth and her experience and knowledge is only outdone by her clear enthusiasm and passion for this subject. Her tour allowed me to get an insight into Bulgarian history and society which I would not have been able to find elsewhere and it was great to have the opportunity to ask her questions, make comparisons between our respective countries, and to see Sofia in a different perspective. The info leaflet that she’s written and which she gives out to her tour participants, plus the pin badge she gives to each person at the end, are a really lovely touch. Lora was very friendly and engaging and generously went out of her way to give me tips, take me to locations, and provide me with additional information beyond the original remit or the tour. Lora was also very flexible and was able to provide me with the tour even when I requested to book it right at the last minute - she really went out of her way. I’d really recommend this tour - and thank you Lora!

Lora's tour of Sofia helped me to see Bulgarian history and culture in a new way. We did the tour on a cold day in December and Lora brought each of us a thermos of tea to keep us warm while we walked, which was a great touch. She clearly has great knowledge and passion for the history of Bulgarian women and I am so glad I did this tour.

Lora was a great guide, and the tour was really special! I was the only person on the tour, so it was more conversational, which I really appreciated. She has really great knowledge on the subject of Bulgarian women’s history, and I also enjoyed how the tour was structured. I’ve taken other walking tours of Sofia (which I also enjoyed), but this one had a unique perspective that I didn’t get on the other tours. Thank you again, Lora!!
