  • Doc. 1249125 January 2011The situation of women in UkraineMotion for a resolutionpresented by Mrs Cramon-Taubadel and others This motion has not been discussed in the Assembly and commits only the members who have signed it1. The situation of women and respect for gender equality in Ukraine raise a number of serious concerns.2. Even though women are represented in parliament, no woman holds a government post. Thegovernment has passed discriminatory regulations with regards to what it deems to be appropriate clothingand appearance for government workers, which target especially women. Women are also hardlyrepresented in the public sphere and in the work field. Support for various women’s projects has beenstopped by the government. In addition, violence against women, including domestic violence and traffickingof human beings, especially women, are lingering concerns against which no substantive action has beentaken. Action also needs to be taken with regards to the situation of female migrant workers and theirfamilies, especially after their return to Ukraine.3. In view of the above, the Assembly should decide to examine more attentively the situation of womenin Ukraine and make recommendations with regards to the achievement of de jure and de facto genderequality, in order to help Ukraine establish a society truly based on the principles of democracy, respect forhuman rights and the rule of law.Signed (see overleaf) F – 67075 Strasbourg Cedex | | Tel: + 33 3 88 41 2000 | Fax: +33 3 88 41 27 33
