Summary/Abstract: In the post-WW II period the initial high illiteracy among female population was gradually reduced. However, up to the early twentieth century, illiteracy had not been exterminated. In some parts of Serbia the extreme differences in population literacy levels of earlier periods, typical for previous periods, were moderated. Illiteracy remained typical mostly among elderly female population. Women became increasingly involved in schooling at all educational levels. Their participation in educational institutions was gradually balanced to the male population share. Therefore, previously marked differences that had existed both before and immediately after the World War II were reduced. Female youth was more and more present at schools, starting from elementary ones to the University level.
