This is an appeal of the participants of the international conference “Women’s Path: East and West” to the President of Lithuania, the Parliament and the Government to validate the International Convention Against Women Discrimination. The Conference participants state that Lithuania does not ratify UN documents on gender equality, Lithuanian women do not take part in government, there is an increase of women’s discrimination in the labour market, women do not have the possibility to combine professional activity and responsibility in the family. They appeal to initiate laws, which protect women from violence; to initiate health reform and to establish an Ombudsman institution.
