Promoting Women´s Rights in the Czech Republic by Dancing Against Violence

1. 9. 2017

„Promoting Women´s Rights in the Czech Republic “, is the project’s name realized by Czech Women lobby (CWL) since September 1st 2017.

Within this project we join to event One Billion Rising 2018, the biggest mass action to combat violence against women. Every year countries around the world express their solidarity with women who are suffering from violence. Czech Women’s Lobby has been an integral part of the campaign since its inception five years ago. We are eager to join the international campaign again in 2018 and invite people to join us and rise against violence against women. We would like to build on this year’s successful event Dancing Against Violence 2017 on which we cooperated with famous fitness trainer Hanka Kynychová.

This event will support the prevention of violence against women in society. We will cooperate closely with our member organizations  ACORUS, SIMI, Konsent, OZVI SE! / HollaBack! Czech, proFEM a ROSA, (who work with survivors of violence), which will be available on the spot for people seeking help or who just want to learn more about the issue.

The Patronage of Dance Against Violence will take over by the President of the Czech Police and The event will take place in cooperation with the National Theater.
