The Ljubljana Feminist Bike Tour is a new take on the popular Ljubljana Feminist Tour, an educational two-hour walk around the city centre that has been run by Urbana Vrana since July 2017. Offering a gender perspective on Slovenia's capital, Ljubljana Feminist Tour has become a Ljubljana mainstay. It is a popular way of learning about feminism, women's rights and women's history. Ljubljana Feminist Tour, a member and co-founder of the Global Network of Feminist Tours, has inspired the creation of feminist tours in other countries, for instance the Belgrade Feminist Tour and the Reykjavik Feminist Walking Tour.
The new tour premiers at the festival and follows the less-travelled dirt roads of the local herstory, or rather, herstories. In three hours, consisting of leisurely cycling and 10- to 15-minute stops, you will discover the fascinating yet often forgotten heroines of Slovenia's women rights struggles, as well as iconic personalities from all walks of life. Instead of merely using your feet, this time you're invited to sit proudly on, and ride the very tool and early symbol of women's emancipation – the bicycle!
“We highly recommend the Ljubljana Feminist Tour. You will learn a lot about Ljubljana women (and perhaps even more about their unjustified absence from public space).”
– Amnesty International Slovenia
The tour will be guided by Jasmina Jerant.
