Yesterday, a round-table on gender equality organised by Society Without Violence, one of The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation’s Armenian partner organisations, were attacked by a group of nationalists. The group shouted slogans against women’s rights activists and security personel had to stop them from entering the event. Kvinna till Kvinna has released a statement condemning the attack.
The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation and our partner organisations in Iraq are very concerned about the negative development for women’s human rights in Iraq. Sweden has a good relationship with Iraq, and with that comes a responsibility. Therefore we today send a letter to Sweden’s Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, demanding that Sweden takes action!
When a female student at Cairo University in Egypt was sexually harassed by a mob of students on campus, the women’s rights organisation ACT decided to take action.
