 Round Table: Aim and effect of the project PrevNext
Human rights, such as the right to live safety and the right to freely take part in social activities, must apply equally to men and women. The reality, however, is that social awareness of women'fs human rights is still low, and women face various forms of gender-specific problems, such as sexual harassment, domestic violence, child prostitution and underage sexual exploitation, regardless of the region or country in which they live. The Womenfs Dignity Project aims to enhance social recognition of women'fs human rights and dignity and prevent women from becoming victims of abuse in order to build a society where women can live with peace and freedom.
