Gender Democracy

Gender Democracy


Gender issues in Ukraine are getting more and more popular – in media, in academia, in public events. Today ‘gender issues’ include not only the issues of equality between women and men, feminism, but also the issues of sexual orientation and gender identity, queer studies and minority rights, which are often under pressure. Alongside with the positive tendencies in the society – critical analysis of the existing gender order, identification of inequalities, orientation on European values, we can observe strengthening of the conservative right wing and religious approaches, that are characterized with hierarchy, exclusivity and gettoization of minorities.

We actively support initiatives of the public organizations in their work on promoting gender democracy. Through cooperation with stable partners, support of young and creative women’s and LGBT-organizations, conferences, training courses, public discussions, exhibitions, research, publications, and other public work we attempt to support development and democratization of Ukrainian society.
