The paper analyses the issue of the woman in the Dalmatian hinterland in oral-literary forms recorded in that area and within the traditional culture in general, to which oral literature is imminent, from the end of the 18th century until today. The Dalmatian hinterland was significant in almost all historical periods; despite that, it is often associated with narrow-mindedness, moral and material misery. In such general circumstances a woman was also perceived in the same manner. Researching that area, however, we need to take into account the symbiosis of the contrasting occurrences – advanced view on life and considerable narrow-mindedness. Mate Maras was motivated for the research of the Dalmatian hinterland by the following goals comprised by our research – breaking down prejudice about the Dalmatian hinterland as a unity of negative occurrences and processes and about its people as a more physical than intellectual conception which does not correspond to the factual state since the Dalmatian hinterland yielded incredibly important intellectual and spiritual personas such as Ante Konstantin Matas, Jakov Gotovac, Ante Topic Mimara, Ivan Meštrovic.
