Union Sapari Meets Local Lawyers and Students in Zugdidi

02 April 2019 Giorgi Urchukhishvili talking to the students of Shota Meskhia Zugdidi State University

On March 25, Union Sapari, under the USAID/PROLoG-funded legal aid project “Comprehensive Approach to the Violence against Women and Girls,” met with local lawyers and students in Zugdidi. The meeting was organized in the framework of “Women’s History Month 2019,” a month that annually highlights the contributions and accomplishments of women in history and contemporary society.

Representatives of Sapari met with local lawyers working on domestic violence and violence against women cases, and shared their knowledge and experience. Participants talked about the gaps in the investigation of cases involving violence against women and domestic violence, and also reviewed existing challenges with regard to issuing restraining and protective orders in the Samegrelo region. Giorgi Urchukhishvili, Sapari project coordinator, also visited Shota Meskhia Zugdidi State University to meet local students, and gave a lecture on the “Social Organization of Masculinity”. He reviewed the main types of masculinity: hegemonic, subordinated, complicit and marginalized; and explained the correlation of masculinity and gender-based violence. 19 people attended the lecture and participated in the discussion. They highlighted the need to raise awareness of these problems among students from the Samegrelo region.
