On Wednesday, 26 October the finissage of the exhibition Me, on the summit. A female alpine history takes place at the women’s museum Hittisau, Austria.

With this exhibition the WM Hittisau uncovered pieces of female history and made a valuable contribution to the tasks of women’s museums.

The WM Hittisau writes about this show: The exhibition offers comprehensive documentation of this issue for the first time. Over the last two centuries different exhibitions with reference to Alpine topics took place, but women’s multifaceted roles in this context were represented only marginally. The Frauenmuseum Hittisau shows biographies and life concepts of climbing women, traces prejudices and hostilities towards them and finds out about the women Alpinists’ empowerment. You will hear about those women who have been living and working in the mountains forever: farmwoman, “Sennerin”, shepherdess, hostesses, woman poacher. We tell about female figures in myths and fairy tales, from the woman in white to Himalayan goddesses.
Is there a particularly female view on the mountains? Numerous female artists, photographers, filmmakers, scientists and literary women have devoted themselves to the subject.
