Feminism and Gender Democracy

Welcome to Heinrich Boell Foundation South Caucasus's new, feminist web-site!  This new platform will be exclusively dedicated to our gender democracy projects.

Gender democracy is one of the basic principles of Heinrich Boell Foundation. The concept postulates equal rights, opportunities and access to resourses for all members of society. Development of events in the region demonstrates that human rights, especially minority rights, are not guaranteed in the countries. Accordingly, HBF actively supports projects which promote gender democracy. Our gender component covers educational programs, discussions, gender researches and other public activity, which contribute to democratization of the region.

We proudly present the materials, which have been collected during our work in South Caucasus region and which will be constantly updated.
