The world needs to hear the voices of Ukrainian women who are now fighting for freedom, — Kira Rudik at the Alliance of Her session

The voices of Ukrainian women who are now wrestling the aggressor for the right to freedom must be heard. An MP of Ukraine, leader of the Golos party, and vice-president of ALDE Kira Rudik emphasized this while speaking at the Alliance of Her session. At the event, women's leadership without barriers and support for women in their aspirations were discussed.

«Ukrainian women have been inspiring the world for more than a year with their courage, indomitability, endurance, and willpower. A Ukrainian woman is now a defender, a volunteer, and a breadwinner for her family. According to the latest data from the Ministry of Defense, there are already 42,000 women in the ranks of the Armed Forces, and about 5,000 are actively participating in combat operations. We still have a lot to work on, because only 9% of women in the army have officer ranks and only three Ukrainian women have general epaulets», — stressed the MP. 

Alliance of Her is an ALDE initiative that gives women in Europe the opportunity to realize their political ambitions. The Alliance supports women's efforts at every step and advocates barrier-free and equal opportunities for women's leadership.
