We hope that our discussion will help to raise awareness about different women`s issues and get us together to tackle them.
During the meeting we address to our panellists questions about women issues at their localities including Finland, Austria, Kyrgyzstan.
We will discuss whether the COVID-19 quarantine measures affect women`s wellbeing. Our panellists will share their opinion whether it is safe to stay at home for women and what should be done to improve the situation.
