Taida Horozovic | 28 February 2007


We invite you to join us in the action entitled «March for your rights,» whereby we would like to draw attention to discrimination of women in all spheres of life in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Also, our intention is to show that the 8th of March is in fact a day when women started their everlasting struggle for equality in political and other decision making processes, employment and especially education.


Dear activists and friends,

We invite you to join us in the action entitled «March for your rights,» whereby we would like to draw attention to discrimination of women in all spheres of life in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Also, our intention is to show that the 8th of March is in fact a day when women started their everlasting struggle for equality in political and other decision making processes, employment and especially education.

We want to deconstruct stereotypes and settled patriarchal practices of buying gifts and flowers, as well as celebrating the 8th of March as the only day in the entire year when women should feel special. In this regard, we, the activists and feminists are organizing a march which will commence with gathering at the Square of BiH at 11.00 am and continue with a route accross the Maršal Tito street, Ferhadija street up to city’s Cathedral, were we shall organize an info stand with promo materials, and activists citizens can talk with.

As our goal is to point out all forms of women human rights violations, especially in the domain of political representation and actual participation of women in the decision making bodies, your support in preparing the action, participation at the march and other activities we organize is more then desired and welcome.

For other information regarding the action and direct participation, please call Alisa Karovic 033 207 257 or 061 515 094 or write to alisa@fondacijacure.org

Your contribution for creating or financing promo materials and/or other forms of technical assistance can be confirmed at above mentioned contacts.

Zelimo dekonstruirati stereotipe i ustaljene patrijarhalne prakse kupovine poklona i cvijeca, te slavljenja 8. Marta kao jedinog dana u godini u kojem se zene trebaju osjecati posebnima.

Kako nam je cilj ukazati na sve oblike krsenja zenskih ljudskih prava, a posebno u domeni politicke zastupljenosti i stvarnog ucesca zena u tijelima odlucivanja, Vasa podrska u pripremi akcije, ucesca na marsu i drugim aktivnostima koje organiziramo je vise nego pozeljna i dobrodosla.
