13/10/2022 | 17:56:37 Honourable Chair, Dear colleagues, I would also like to thank the rapporteur for very well-penned and detailed report that presents important data and clear and very strong messages on what should be done to make sport free of sexism, gender discrimination, and violence. As it is clearly stated in the report, sport does remain the environment which is more favourable for men. Though the gates of sport have been gradually opened for female athletes, they still face a number of issues such as... 22/06/2022 | 16:50:49 Thank you, honourable Chair, dear colleagues, At the beginning of the 20th century the movement for women's right to vote was spreading worldwide.

Many of my colleagues in the European Union were wondering how, after the challenges and crises caused... 27/01/2022 | 11:15:19 Can you hear me? Honourable Chair, Dear Colleagues, My daughter was born last year, during the world pandemic and the 44-day Nagorno-Karabakh War. To be sincere, I would never believe this is a situation I would ever be in. My daughter is already one year old. It has been a year since the trilateral declaration between Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Russia was signed. But our Armenian brothers are still illegally keeping Azerbaijan prisoners of war. It has been a year, but the situation is far from...
