GDI Celebrates International Women’s Day with Students in Samtskhe-Javakheti

13 March 2018 Students involved in discussing women’s rights issues

On March 6, GDI organized an event for students in Samtskhe-Javakheti dedicated to celebrating Mother’s Day and International Women’s Day. The event was organized under the USAID/PROLoG legal aid grant “Litigation for Equality,” and took place at the Damala village public school with the participation of students, teachers and parents.

During the event students made presentations about women’s rights and other pressing matters in Georgia, including early marriage and domestic violence. The GDI representatives explained that marriage must be based on person’s decision and free will.  Various forms of domestic violence were also staged, and then discussions were held about the types of violence that occurred and about how women and girls can protect themselves.

After the event, GDI lawyer Maia Gigineishvili provided students, teachers and parents with information about women’s rights and gender equality matters. The discussion also covered the challenges faced by women in Georgia and ways to solve those problems. The GDI representatives also distributed brochures to parents and teachers on heritage and cohesion as well as on marriage (in Georgian and Armenian). Also, GDI provided legal aid on various topics to those requesting assistance.
