December 2010

On March 29, 2002, the Bureau of the Federal Council of the YABLOKO party established a commission (under Bureau) for equal opportunities for women and men. The work of the commission resulted in the development of the gender part of YABLOKO’s programme and platform.

The gender branch of the YABLOKO party was formally established on May 18, 2006 at the All-Russia Statutory Conference in Ekaterinburg. The branch got the status of YABLOKO’s faction at the 13th party congress (June 10-11, 2006). The Gender Faction, like all the other factions, has the consultative capacity in the governing bodies of the party. In February 2008 YABLOKO’s Gender Faction became a full-fledged member of the International Network of Liberal Women in Liberal International.

In March 2009 the Gender Faction of the YABLOKO party joint the Council for Consolidation of Women’s Movement in Russia.

The faction has 45 branches all over Russia and 600 active members.
