Summary/Abstract: The life of the female population in post-war Serbia and during the second half of the 20th century was affected by a plethora of various factors with the differences in lifestyles of women being particularly differentiated between rural and urban areas. In the rural areas and rural environment patriarchal relations had persisted for a long period of time, which were reflected in various walks of life of a female and were manifested at different levels. In the cities and urban areas significant changes took place in a female everyday life, her status as well as the perception of the female by the environment. With the introduction of the modern urban lifestyle, urban patterns of behaviour were accepted. Noticeable contrasts that existed in relation to the woman between the two wars, her overall status and life in rural and urban areas during the socialist era were mitigated, but in no way were they completely anulled or overcome.
