What will the Ukrainian elections mean for gender equality and justice?
Today, Ukraine will have Parliamentary elections, the first Parliamentary elections since our Revolution. Both women and men stood at Maidan through months of days and nights for several months for the principles that are fundamentals of contemporary democratic states. One of the principles most central to those fundamentals is equality. In the Millennium Development Declaration, signed together with 189 countries, Ukraine declared that by 2015 women’s representation in the Parliament will reach 30% and, respectively, took on the obligation to create favorable conditions for that. Will Ukraine achieve this goal and we will see at least 135 women in the new Parliament? We are afraid not.
