On the International Women’s Day it was marched with the motto “We march against the patriarchate that kills”
On International Women’s Day, YIHR KS has supported the march with the motto “We march against the patriarchy that kills” in the streets of the capital. The march conveyed the message of resistance to patriarchy that has taken the lives of many women during 2020, as well as to commemorate and demand justice and equality for all women.
Many civil society organizations and activists joined the march holding posters with the inscriptions “Patriarchate Kills”, “Justice for Murdered Women”, “I choose what I work”. Part of the traditional protest were 14 other municipalities and citizens who placed in their balconies sheets with inscriptions calling for justice and equality.
International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on March 8 to commemorate the cultural, political and socio-economic achievements of women, as well as to bring to attention issues such as gender equality and violence against women.
