Strengthening democratic culture through gender justice

This initiative was supported by The New Democracy Fund through the New Cooperation Fund.

About the project

This project focuses on the study of young people’s perceptions of gender stereotypes in Ukraine. The overall purpose is to support gender justice in Ukraine and strengthen democracy.


Gender justice is key to democratic culture. Therefore, the project’s overall purpose is to improve gender justice efforts through a new partnership between KVINFO and three strong, Ukrainian women’s rights organisations. The project aims at exchanging knowledge and experience on gender justice, focusing on youth, and contributing to developing a more democratic culture.
