Public Defender’s Office assesses effectiveness of national institutional mechanisms for gender equality in Georgia
On 15 April 2022, the Public Defender’s Office, in partnership with UN Women, hosted the presentation of the Public Defender’s special report “Assessing the Effectiveness of National Institutional Mechanisms for Gender Equality in Georgia”.
A week since The World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 as a pandemic, the social impact of the Corona Virus is hitting women hard, around the world.

As first responders, frontline health workers, primary care givers at home and community mobilizers, women are at increased risk of exposure to the virus. They are also playing a disproportionate role in responding to the disease.
The National Statistics Office of Georgia (GEOSTAT) took its work on gender statistics to another level by launching an electronic Gender Data Portal at the end of 2018.
