Women’s Union of Turkmenistan – Winner of the Carec Special Programme Prize

8 December 2023

In the period of the Revival of the New Era of the Powerful State, much attention is paid to the development of the women’s movement in our independent and neutral Motherland. Being one of the largest public organisations in the country, whose ranks unite thousands of the most active participants in the grandiose achievements of today, the Women’s Union is an authoritative force in the implementation of creative transformations initiated by the National Leader of the Turkmen people, Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and now successfully implemented by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov.

The state provides women with all kinds of benefits, creates conditions for their decent life and creative work, ensuring gender equality at the legislative level. Currently, representatives of the fair half of Turkmen society work in government structures – legislative and executive bodies, participate in foreign-policy activities, are successfully engaged in entrepreneurship, and make a significant contribution to the implementation of grandiose programmes aimed at bringing their Motherland into the ranks of developed countries of the world. At the same time, it should be noted that the country is carrying out comprehensive work to respect their rights and interests, to support the family and to protect motherhood and childhood. The practical steps taken in this direction are highly appreciated by the international community.
