Gender faction to hold a picket for equal rights and opportunities for men and women
Press release, 07.03.2017
On March 8th, the International Women’s Day, YABLOKO’s Gender faction will hold a picket for equal rights and opportunities for men and women. Galina Mikhaleva, the leader of the faction and deputy chair of the Moscow branch of YABLOKO, will take part in the action.
The participants of the picket will demand to introduce a special law in support of the constitutional provision on the equal rights and opportunities for men and women.
“We can see discrimination not only in the sphere of economy but in all the spheres of life. Clericalism and “the conservative turn” of the political course only strengthen it,” Mikhaleva said.
This year the city hall refused to sanction a rally which the Gender faction conducts annually, therefore the activists decided to hold a picket.
The action starts at 15:00 by the Novokuznetskaya metro station.
