Summary/Abstract: Interdisciplinarity, immanent to women studies, also marked the ways of acquiring knowledge of past events from the women’s perspective. The pronounced interdisciplinarity in the approach and research of that topic has conditioned the combining of methods of various academic disciplines and their intertwining. The accent in the article is on the studies which were especially significant in the rooting of women’s history in Serbia and the bases of many future researches in this area. In the nineteen-nineties, women’s history, as a new cognitive and research field, gradually becomes more intriguing for domestic authors too, its importance is increasingly recognized, making it so that the research interest towards women’s topics, and thus interpretations of the past from the women’s perspective, are in the centre of many works in the 21st century. Their volume, diversity of topics and researched segments from the lives of women, female practice, and women’s experiences in the past confirm the growing interests for examining women’s and gender history in this region. Some of the topics from the history of women in Yugoslav were in the centre of interest of foreign historians, too.
