International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women | Urgent Appeal #FreeBelarusWomen

Belarus Women’s Foundation urgently appeals to resolve the humanitarian crisis into which the Lukashenko regime plunged the women of Belarus. Belarus Women’s Foundation calls for an immediate release of ALL political prisoners in Belarus, for their rehabilitation and reparation, and calls to bring Lukashenko and everyone responsible for the crimes against the Belarusian people to justice. 


Urgent Appeal

#FreeBelarusWomen  

25.11.21


On November 25th the world marks the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. 


The women of Belarus have first-hand experience of violence. For over 27 years we have had to put up with an abuser in our house who has been using his regime to torture our families and us.  Just like any other abuser #Lukashenka refuses to take “no” for an answer and keeps trying to convince us that it is us who is to blame and that we deserve torture and beatings.


Lukashenka turned violence into his official ideology and deliberately targets physical and psychological vulnerability of women by placing them in inhuman detention conditions, by taking away their children and by destroying their lives.  Repressions against women bring to a halt whole sectors where women make up the majority of the workforce: education, healthcare, social services and media. 


Belarus has a womanly face.  Lukashenka deeply hates Belarusian women and like many other tyrants, when losing their grip on power, he will stop at nothing.


And we must put an end to this!  


The global movement to end violence against women cannot succeed while more than 4 million women are being held hostage by an abusive and torturing dictator in the centre of Europe.
