Description

In order to realize the cultural rise of girls and women, the government faced serious obstacles of the time, such as patriarchal and conservative thoughts of Albanian society. This problem was born out in the past, although with the efforts of King Zog's government to educate women, very little was actually done. The emancipation of girls and women took place in open war with religious faith, accusing it of being a regressive force in society. Above all, work was done to minimize conservatism within the Albanian family. The participation of women in illiteracy courses, in production, in school, met with great resistance. not only by the families, but also the entire Albanian conservative society. However, propaganda would not hesitate to present time figures, comparing the situation with the state of pre-liberation

The emancipation of women took place in the fight against bigotry, a consequence of the past legacy of feudal backwardness, which was more pronounced in villages or in remote mountain areas. Although much was initially done to entice women and girls into the fight against illiteracy, abolition, or the sale of girls, who were engaged with the help of the women's organization, youth or through party organs located at the head of the movement.

Keywords:

Emancipation, conservatism, illiteracy, regression.
