Tajik youth discussed the promotion of women’s rights and gender equality at an OSCE-organized roundtable discussion on 17 October 2019 in Dushanbe. The event was dedicated to the International Day of Rural Women. Some 60 members of the Gender Champions network took part in the discussion, as well as representatives of civil society and the international community.
The event served as a platform for dialogue between youth and international organizations working on gender equality. It also enabled the participants to share success stories on events aimed at promoting women participation in public life.
“I am proud to be a member of the Gender Champions network,” said Avizova Kamila, one of the participants of the event. Every day I change people’s opinion and win their hearts, and this way every day I win”.
Gender Champions is a network of young Tajik women and men who are engaged in promotion of women’s rights, gender equality and women’s participation in political and public life. The network was established in 2017 with the support of the OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe.
