We are pleased to announce that members of Grozny-based Women for Development have recently joined the WLUML network. The group take a holistic approach to women rights, putting on art exhibitions, street actions, and information campaigns.
As well as hosting seminars on pressing problems - such as domestic violence – Women for Development work to foster the artistic ambitions of young women. The group recently showcased the work of young Chechen artists in an exhibition entitled ‘Peace through women’s eyes’. This was a rare opportunity to give women’s take on the concept of peace and to encourage their artistic expression; a vital undertaking in a situation where political stability has been secured at the expense of women’s freedoms.
