Women in Service to Georgia
One of the key areas of the Women, Peace and Security agenda is to increase, support and advance the participation of women in the Defence Forces. For more than 10 years, UN Women has been working with the Ministry of Defence of Georgia to mainstream gender within the institution. This cooperation, among others, includes the promotion of women in the Defence Forces and the recognition of their contributions. This publication serves to fulfil this purpose.
This publication presents the profiles of 13 women on duty, reflecting on their courage, bravery, struggles and commitments. Their stories demonstrate the significant contribution women make in service to the defence of Georgia.
