The University for Continuing Education, pupils from the Piaristen High School and the Krems-based societies „raumgreifend“ and „funkundküste“ commemorated notable women from Krems in a public event at the University for Continuing Education Krems on International Women’s Day.

Female freedom fighters, politicians, successful business women, artists and many other „notable“ women from Krems were presented at the event “DenkMal! Denkwürdige Kremserinnen“, jointly organized by the University for Continuing Education Krems and the two Krems-based societies „raumgreifend“ and „funkundküste,“ anchored by Ö1 editor-in-chief Elisa Vass and the event’s staff to illustrate the traces that women in public positions in Krems left behind. Pupils from class 7G from the Piaristen High School Krems participated by giving a performance.
