“Rights Georgia” Launched a New Project with the Support of the USAID Rule of Law Program
The project is aimed at protecting rights and supporting access to justice for the female victims of sexual harassment, domestic violence, domestic crime, sexual and other violent as well as gender-motivated crimes.
Within the framework of the project “Rights Georgia” will be focused on changing vicious practices in Georgia and, as a result of strategic litigation, in line with the international standards and the best European practices, establishing and developing gender-specific, sensitive, victim-oriented, and victimologically safe practices.
The project will also seek to increase the awareness of female victims (or potential victims) of violence about their legal rights, and the protective and supporting measures available to them, especially in regions populated by religious and ethnic minorities.
