Naj žene "Blic žene"

Blic žena, the most circulated weekly in Serbia, traditionally organizes the selection for the Best Woman of the Year.

The choice is usually made between ordinary women the general public does not know about, even though they should. These women fulfill their mission quietly, without desire for recognition, but they deserve admiration.

Throughout the year, the Blic žena newsroom publishes life stories of these “ordinary” women – houswives, mothers, humanists, workers, doctors, and university professors.

At the end of the year, the editorial board chooses the ten most memorable and calls readers to vote for the story that left them the strongest impression on them. All of those women are the best, but only one – the one who won the most votes – will be the best of the best.

In recent years, 120 of them won the title, and the culmination of each election is an event bringing together all the winners, when awards are given to them for outstanding success and achievements.
