In 2018, it is exactly 20 years since the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence is held in Kyrgyzstan. Also it is 20 years of the center «Sezim».
Our center is of the same age as the 20-year history in Kyrgyzstan, the most large-scale anti-gender violence action in the world. In 1998, the center «Sezim» for the first time initiated an action in our country. And since then, every year we have been already among the country movement to protect the rights of women and girls within the framework of the international 16 days of activism..
Therefore, we timed our 20th anniversary to the significant dates of the action from November 25 to December 10, to remember how we started and how we worked to reduce discrimination and violence in Kyrgyzstan.
We are proud of our story.
