Achieving gender equality and fighting against discrimination of women on the way to building a democratic state has been challenging for Georgia. Over the years the Georgian government has definitely made some positive attempts to develop, improve, and implement gender equality strategies and to ensure its international obligations. Like neighbouring countries in the South Caucasus, our government still needs a greater commitment to ensure gender equality, and must work to avoid the discrimination of women. Georgia is trying its best to develop into a European state while at the same time keeping its best values and traditions. Gender Politics are one of the main and essential indicators of the country’s democratic development.

Achieving democracy requires implementing numerous mechanisms and practices, including establishing gender equality in which men and women have equal rights and opportunities. Civil society groups have gradually introduced gender equality into the political discourse and placed it on the list of required reforms; however, along with many other emerging social problems and political tensions, this issue has not received priority attention. It is crucial to realize that without gender equality we can’t develop as a democracy-building country – because there is no democracy without gender equality.
