“A country can only achieve its full strength when everybody is given the same opportunity to reach their potential. It’s time to work to remove the barriers that are holding back girls and women from fully contributing to making Georgia as strong as it can be.” – EU Ambassador Carl Hartzell
To mark International Women’s Day, throughout March the EU is running “Strong Women – Strong Georgia”: a campaign to highlight the valuable contributions and impact of women in Georgia, as well as discuss the challenges they still face, be it discrimination, gender-based violence, or COVID-19.
Listen to the full message from EU Ambassador Carl Hartzell, check out the stories of women in Georgia below, and join us on Facebook and Instagram for the discussion throughout March!”
