Roma women break the stigma

Roma culture contributed substantially to the Albanian national heritage. For the first time in Albanian history, this statement was officially supported by the Albanian President. With a speech, he opened a permanent exhibition on Roma culture in the Albanian National Museum. 

Groups of Roma women from different towns and villages initiated the display of their culture in the museum. How did they manage this? It all began with a rather conventional activity: women sewing clothes to show the traditional outings of their culture. The women then realised that the influence of their culture to Albanian society was not recognised by any formal institution or authority, whereas Roma have been living in Albania for centuries and as such contributed to the development of contemporary Albanian society.
