SLOVENIA WOMEN'S ACTIVISM IN
SOLIDARITY WITH WOMEN
OF RUSSIA AND POLAND FOR REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS
From Sonja Lokar
CEE Network for Gender Issues
Ljubjana Office - Slovenia
As a member of the Women's Lobby of Slovenia, CEE Network was crucial in the organizing of two protests in solidarity with the women in Russia and Poland, where there are serious attempts in the parliament to diminish their right to legal and safe abortion.
We succeeded to hand out our appeals in in their support addresses to MP Putin and Tusk, to the Russian Deputy Ambassador and to the Polish Ambassador, in Slovenia.
There were many media reporters present, and we gave some interviews. We also sent a special press release to all the media after the event. I succeeded as well, to publish a special article on this women's human rights issue in the Saturday supplement of the daily Dnevnik.
