For over three years, EWMI's Advancing CSO Capacities and Engaging Society for Sustainability (EWMI ACCESS) project has supported an online platform, Women of Georgia, created to raise awareness about gender inequalities and promote open discussion of issues affecting women in Georgia. Featuring real stories of women from various backgrounds, these stories have become an important voice for many women. In the past two months, Women of Georgia has published 15 new stories that combined hit a record number of over one million total views and brought over 3,000 new followers to the official Facebook page, bringing the total to over 78,800 followers. Moreover, many of these stories were quickly picked up by national TV channels and social media sites, stirring intense debates and, in some cases, first-time conversations on women’s struggles in Georgia.
EWMI ACCESS also supported the creation of the Women of Georgia website, www.womenofgeorgia.ge, that collects all the published stories in Georgian and English languages.
ACCESS is funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
