  • women and society (women in policy, economy, family, and culture);
  • international legal documents for the improvement of women’s rights;
  • women health;
  • women and education;
  • women and violence;

  • gender issues and equality of sexes;

Materials displayed at the exhibition acquaint visitors with the history of the development of international strategies, standards, programs, and objectives for the equality of sexes and improvement of women’s rights.  

At the exhibition are displayed over 100 publications by UN, UNESCO, Council of Europe, European Union, and the World Bank in Russian, English, French, and German languages: books, periodicals, brochures, booklets, and mimeographed materials.

We invite to the exhibition professors, experts of social and politic sciences, students, lawers, historians, sociologists, heads of state and un-governmental organizations, and everyone who is interested in gender ideology and sociology.
