Supporting women's rights
Throughout the months of February and March of 2018, the Embassy of Latvia in UK is organising several events and receptions in London celebrating women`s contribution to politics, business and literature.
The Ambassador of Latvia to UK, Ms Baiba Braze is inviting the guests of selected events to donate towards support of women's rights organisation Marta in Latvia.
There is still lots to do in the women's rights field in Latvia, as confirmed by the latest statistics, for example on domestic violence:
- 39% of girls and women in Latvia experience violence before they turn 15
- 57% of society believes that violence against women is often provoked by women
- 39% of people believe that women exaggerate when they report rape or sexual harassment
www.marta.lv is a non-governmental organisation that aims to provide support to women in Latvia – including non-citizens and migrants, women with low income and unemployed women, female victims of human trafficking and of domestic violence.
Any donations towards the support of Marta's cause are highly appreciated.
Thank you for helping to make changes in the lives of women in Latvia.
