Women’s Human Rights

In 2008 - 2014 Karat Coalition implemented the "Women's Rights" program. It had two main components: the promotion of the mechanisms of the Optional Protocol (OP CEDAW) to the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and the activities for improving the women's access to justice in the Region.
