Advocacy

Initial premise of the Autonomous Women's Center is that policies, in order to fight against violence against women, at the local and national level should be consistent with international standards and good practices in this field. In accordance with the strategic goals, that the Convention of the United Nations and the Council of Europe should be implemented well by the state and that in the process of joining the European Union we must respect the human rights of women, Autonomous Women's Center consistently monitors the implementation of and advocates for a comprehensive, coherent, relevant, specific, efficient and effective national policies against violence against women.

Network Women Poverty Development (50 women's organizations) has prepared comments to the Law on Amendments to the Law on games of chance, which were submitted to the Committee for Gender Equality, with the request that they submit them to the Assembly Committee because it is in accordance with their mandate.

These amendments suggest that 5% of the funds for sport renamed in the funds intended for organizations which are working to improve the status of women.
