The seamstresses

If you want to survive in the Macedonian city of Stip as a writer or artist, there is only one option: Becoming a seamstress in the flourishing textile industry. While the women are employed fulltime, the men are less lucky: Ever since the political changeover, most have remained unemployed – a conflict-loaded situation.
