On the Occassion of the International Women's Day

On International Women's Day, we celebrate the boldness and determination of women who with their resignation and courage essentially changed the course of history of their countries and local communities. It is the day, which is an expression of the struggle for women's economic, political and social equality. At the same time, although the position and rights of women are the issues we should think about every day, 8 March was established as a day of reflection and critical analysis of the progress of women, the day during which the problems faced by women around the world are particularly stressed, and calls on social and political action, which would improve their situation, become more visible both on social networks, and global media scene.

Achieving these goals requires the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women, ending any form of violence against women and girls (including human trafficking, sexual and any other exploitation of women and girls), as well as the elimination of many other unacceptable practices such as child, early and forced marriages and female genital mutilation.

During 2016, Praxis contributes to the achievement of these objectives through the implementation of a number of activities aimed at the prevention and elimination of child, early and forced marriages, and protection of children and women refugees, bearing in mind that their specific situation requires a significant number of gender-sensitive services and protection mechanisms.
