Women’s Power - Economic and Political Participation for Inclusive Societies in Georgia

Project Description
The project “Women's Power” aims to support women and girls in four regions of Georgia (Kakheti, Guria, Racha and Imereti) to participate equally in economy and politics and change patriarchal mindsets and stereotypes. Feminist activists, including young people, will be trained and funded to implement local actions that contribute to increased women’s political and economic participation. The action will result in tangible changes improving the lives of local women and men, girls and boys.
