Kosovo women are marking International Women’s Day, on March 8, with a protest aimed at raising awareness of social and gender justice.
With the slogan "We march, we don’t celebrate!" activists will be protesting on Thursday against women's inability to achieve social and gender justice. The protest will be organised by Kosovo Women's Network and other NGOs advocating for women's rights in Kosovo. “We don’t have a reason to celebrate,” is written on the invitation of this group of activists, organisations, academics and others. The protest will also condemn prevalent unemployment and poverty, “as forms of structural violence exercised upon citizens of the Republic of Kosovo”. The protest will take place at 12:00 starting from Zahir Pajaziti Square in Pristina, while the activists say they will continue with strikes, protests and other forms of political resistance to patriarchal and social injustice.
