They climb the highest mountains, excel in science, fight for human rights… They move the boundaries in every field and open doors for others.

They do different things. What brings them together is their talent, resilience, courage, their commitment and drive - to defend human rights, to protect the environment, to empower and help others…

Meet them in the heart of Europe, in the Western Balkans. Watch them doing what they love and care about. See how they inspire new generations to work for a stronger, more united, more equal and prosperous Europe.

They are women leading the way in the Western Balkans. They are Europeans making a difference!
