At the end of August, FRIDA was mentioned in an illustrated article by Russian artist Victoria Lomasko who happened to capture a special moment of Girl Activists of Kyrgyzstan reviewing FRIDA’s grant application. The group shared with us the same moment Lomasko captured, but in photographic form.
We are Girls Activists of Kyrgyzstan. We are from 13-16 year old. We are all different, we have different hobbies, different school, different appearances, we live in different places and we have different lives. But we are all one, we have the same opinions and the same aims.
We need books that will be equal for girls and boys, books about great achievements of women. We need to stop harassment in schools, at home and in the streets. We want to study science without mockery. We need schools without bulling and racket. We need schools for us and about us! We are fighting for the world without violence, discrimination, hate, injustice and gender inequality! We should be heard!
