More women joining Kyrgyz political parties

Just two signs from the Friday newspapers: there were more photos of women than usual in Vecherniy Bishkek (evening Bishkek) and MSN newspaper mentioned ‘Ata Meken’ party congress with two female names in the beginning of the article. 

The women joining this opposition party are both coming from strong NGOs. Namely Educational Center Interbilim which serves as an umbrella organization for NGOS and Legal Clinic ‘Adilet’ which provides quality legal services to different NGOs and disadvantaged groups. An advertisement with Zamira Akbagysheva, leader of Congress of Women of the Kyrgyz Republic, was published in Friday issue of Vecherniy Bishkek.
