Who we are

We are an umbrella network of Czech women’s associations representing a total of 37 organisations, that help women and strive for gender equality.

Our mission is to take on real problems women face and raise them to a political level as well as to improve the situation of women in society. We envision a society in which women’s contribution to all aspects of life is recognised, rewarded and celebrated - in leadership, in care and in production; all women have self-confidence, freedom of choice, and freedom from violence and exploitation; and no woman or girl is left behind. We are part of the European Women’s Lobby, an organization that unites women and gender associations in Europe and cooperate with European institutions.

Czech Woman´s Lobby unites all women, in all their diversities. We embrace their facets and intersections of faith, race, ethnicity, gender or sexual identity, or disability. We celebrate those who came before us, those who stand beside us now, and those who will come after.

  • We unite 37 organizations that support women.
  • We advocate laws that ensure a better life for women.
  • We promote equality between men and women.
  • We strengthen the position of disadvantaged groups of women.
  • We call attention to women’s issues and propose solutions. 

Our vision

We envision a gender equal world, where people of all genders (women, men and non-conforming people) will have comparable access to resources and opportunities, and will receive the support of a culture that openly affirms the value of all women.

Our mission

Our call for feminist power is a call to support and amplify the movements that will change the reality for women and queer people.
