Gender Equality Council of the Parliament of Georgia Issues an Official Statement on the Violent Comments against Tatia Dolidze

18 Jul 2017

Gender Equality Council of the Parliament of Georgia solemnly condemns the violent comments spread in social media against Tatia Dolidze, Georgia’s former youth representative to the United Nations.

The Council notes it is not the first time when a woman was attacked because of her public activity or success, and that similar rough forms are often used in order to pursue women to leave the public space. The Council states that this is principally unacceptable in a democratic society.

Council welcomes the decision of the Ministry of Internal Affairs to open the investigation into this case and is looking forward to its results.
