To walk down the street safely as a lesbian...

In Ukraine, lesbian women get chased down the street and beaten up by groups of aggressive men.

THEY CALL IT 'GOING ON SAFARI'... 

 Until a few years ago, this problem wasn't taken seriously or addressed. Because...

"PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT NOT TO SEE LGBTQI PEOPLE ON THE STREET."

 Olena didn't accept that. Together with many other LGBTQI activists she fights for equal rights. To empower women against this kind of violence, she organises self-defence trainings.

"Of course there's danger, but I don't let that determine my life." I SUPPORT OLENA

 

And they've had success: in 2013 they received protection from the police to organise a Pride parade. Despite the presence of more police agents than activits, to be able to celebrate their identities in public safely was a huge victory.

All around the world, feminist groups are using their knowledge, experience and passion to create radical changes. For themselves and for other women, girls and transgender people. Women and girls like Olena know exactly what needs to be done. That's why Mama Cash supports them.
