Gender Study program (Sources from OSI)

Gender Study Program was established in 1997. We have to mention the fact that program “Gender Study” is a brand new aspect in the educational system and was never taught in former Soviet Union. Therefore, all kind of information is interesting for the population. By this reason, we decided to establish a “Gender Study Center” with its own library, where trainings of institute teachers and seminars for women NGO’s will take place.

Gender Studies Program consists of 4 people. All of them are fluent in English, two of them have graduated from the University in United States and have taken Gender Studies classes.
Gender Study Program is working closely with the representatives of Gender and Culture Program from Central European University (Budapest, Hungary), State University of New-Jersey (Rutgers),
Lane Community College (Eugene, Oregon) where representatives of IFMW went through
training and established a Gender Study Center in 1997. Gender Study Center has established
a library, with books given as a gift from Women’s Tribune Center (New York 1998) and has established a program which gives lectures on the following topics in 3 institutes: Medical Institute Panacea, Economic Institute, Institute of Art.
