Kyrgyzstan #IWD2018

UN Women marked International Women’s Day in conservative, male dominated city of Osh, in southern Kyrgyzstan, together with peer educators and local young activists. Civil society activists marched along the main streets of the city and ended up with conducting self- defense courses for girls and organized a comic performance to tackle the discriminatory practices of early marriages, bride-kidnapping, and domestic violence.
