Comment:Ekatarina Djordjević Milovuk (1844, Novi Sad – 1913, Belgrade) was a well-educated, enterprising feminist and as of 1863 long-time first principal of Belgrade's Higher School of Learning for Women. She published three textbooks and translated numerous stories. She founded and headed the first women's association (Women's Society) in Belgrade in 1873, which steadily expanded its area of work, establishing branches in all major cities and launching its own journal, "Domaćica" (Housewife), in 1879. That same year, the society founded the Workers' School for girls from poor families.
