The album “Key Women in Romanian Life” makes a selection of the most famous Romanian women, among those who marked the country’s life. As admirably emphasizes Princess Marina Sturdza in the Foreword, the book represents “not only an elegant reverence for women with progressive and innovative spirit in the history of Romania, and an anchor for the elderly who may have known some of them, but It can also become a landmark for the young. ”

An album with 50 names (of course, the selection can only be subjective), but which includes, in any case, the most important women of the nation. The short, beautiful texts are due to Dan C. Mihăilescu and Sorina Goloşie (who wrote the biographies); The translation into English belongs to Mrs Emilia Bratu; The selection of the revealing photographs was taken care of by the stamps and the vintage photographs – Emanuel Bădescu.

A Book – as Critic Dan C. Mihăilescu points out in a text titled “The Force of Grace and the Energies of Fragility” – which proposes models: “For the first time, in our historiography and journalism, when so many” top “female physiognomies, one More immersive than others, are contained in such a splendid fray.Timber in character, destiny after destiny (each reader has the freedom to order the charts in alphabetical order, either, chronologically, not even thematically ) Gives a measure of time to some collective mentalities (tendencies) beyond the characteristics of each biography. “  More info
