Judita Šalgo is considered a very important figure in the evolution of Yugoslav feminism, as well as in the development of experimental prose and poetry in the cultural capital of Serbia’s northern province, the Vojvodina. She spoke and worked in Hungarian as well as Serbo-Croatian (the language that is today know as Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, or Montenegrin), and, like her husband, identified primarily as a Yugoslav, although her heritage also contained Hungarian, Serbian, and Jewish elements. Towards the end of her life she was active in movements for peace and national reconciliation in war-torn Yugoslavia.
