Empowering women

Empowering Women:  education and advocacy for the health and human rights of LBT women
 
Empowering Women operates on two levels simultaneously: on one hand we raise public awareness of the rights and needs of LBT women through our advocacy work, and, on the other, educate LBT women and their allies to advocate for their own rights through dialogue with health care providers, political representatives, and fellow human rights advocates.
 
Within a 12-month comprehensive program, we will carry out seminars, workshops, consolidation action, and promotion campaign. In order to combat the stereotypes and increase the visibility of LBT community we plan the production of promotional items, written articles and press releases.
 
Our project consists of four main components:  advocacy, education, support, and empowerment.
 
Advocacy for LBT Women
  • Seminar on LBT advocacy
  • 2 seminars on mental health needs of LBT women
  • 2 workshops focused on sexual and reproductive health of LBT women
 
Education of Health Care Providers and Politicians About the Needs of LBT Women
  • Production of posters and cards
  • Production of the brochure “Ten things LBT women should discuss with their health care provider”
  • Promotional campaign
 
Supporting LBT Women
  • Strategic planning workshop
  • Publishing the book “Empowering women to advocate for LBT women rights in Lithuania”
 
Activating Voices:  Empowering LBT Women to Advocate for Their Own Rights
  • Student seminars
  • Creation of a group of initiative women who will work as advocates for women’s rights
 
We are encouraging not only local community, but also our international friends and colleagues to join us by sharing the ideas, experience and support. Email us: office@gay.lt
