Founded in February 2016, the Center for Promotion of Women’s Rights – Her Rights is a Belarusian non-profit organization whose mission is to help build a better and more just world for both women and men. One of the most important organizational goals is to help women protect and promote their rights and interests in order to build a more democratic society based on equal opportunities. One of the main activities of the organization is to provide free and confidential legal help for women who face gender violence and discrimination. Special attention is paid to the problem of domestic violence: Seventy percent of our participants’ appeals are directly connected to the problem of domestic violence. Women from all the regions of Belarus can address the legal helpline and get legal information and assistance. The group values non-discrimination, gender equality; respect for human rights, and the people they work together with and for.
March, babe! campaign started on Oct 5, 2018 in Belarus when the concept of the law on combating domestic violence was criticised by Belarusian president A.Lukashenko on media after strong lobbyist campaign of anti-gender organizations. We unite many activists who are collecting signatures, talking to decision makers, running creative interventions and performances in Belarus to keep the issue of domestic violence high on the agenda and advocate for the law.
