The mission of the International Public Association “Gender Perspectives” is to enhance such development of society when women and men are able to make free social choice..

The activity of the organization is aimed at achievement of actual equality of women and men, elimination of discrimination based on gender identity by implementation of social programs for prevention of gender based violence, including prevention of trafficking in human beings, domestic violence, workplace discrimination, and sexual harassments.

We believe that the gender equality is fruitful for both women and men, and also for the state, which shall ensure such equality. Moreover the gender is the special factor of vulnerability, especially for women, which restricts their rights, capabilities and access to resources in various life spheres. De jure equality does not ensure de facto equality. By following our mission we advocate implementing by the state its undertaken duties, and we also provide actual support and protection for women whose rights have been violated.

Our approach to implementation of the mission is based on the following principles:

  • Professionalism
  • Responsibility and the right to choose for every client
  • Tolerance
  • Tolerance
  • Non-discrimination
  • Provision of connection between the level of actual support and decision making
