The aim of the essay to represent the work of women architects in Serbia through contemporary feminist theories. It uses the wide range of research about women in Serbian architecture, their background, the institutions they worked in, their buildings, their pedagogical work etc. The text is compared with some elements of Linda Nochlin “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” and reaches to find out similarities and differences between positions of the women as architects and women as other visual artists. Also, this text tries to find out the connection between the women architect’s background and their position as architect in Serbian society and tries to point out that the valorization of their work in past was in direct connection with the latter fact and needs new critical readings through contemporary feminist theories.
