The aim of the article is to introduce female characters of Serbian epic poems and Ukrainian dumas in comparative perspective. The focus is laid on the roles and characteristics attributed to women in epic poems relating to the Battle of Kosovo and dumas describing the period of the battles between Cossacks and Turko-Tatar tribes. It is argued that although women in folk literature usually have a passive role and their main function is to emphasize the importance of the male sacrifice, there are also examples of active female characters that make their own decisions and thereby influence their own destiny as well as the destiny of others.
