The GIRLS POWER BELARUS channel was created in August, against the backdrop of Belarussian protests, brutal violence by security forces against women. We all remember how strong Belarusians stood in chains of solidarity, came out to rallies with flowers, defended Belarusians from beatings, putting up their shoulder. In August 2020, we finally realized that women's contribution to the Belarusian revolution is beyond price.
The Belarusian revolution has a woman's face in many respects.
These are the women who inspired us when we created our channel. We have been writing about our incredible, strong and courageous Belarussian women all along. We helped spread the word about fundraisers and supported and informed our women in every way and we continue to do so.
Our editorial board has been volunteering all this time, and now we want to ask you to support us.
Your support will help us continue to develop and publish stories about incredible, strong and courageous women, to speak honestly about what is important to tell.
We write about women, we support women's rights, we fight against gender discrimination.
Women should not have less political, economic and civil rights just because they are women, and their rights should be respected in practice.
Even Svetlana Tikhanovskaya is supported by many people with a reservation: “But then, we will elect a “normal” president, meaning a man.
There is a risk that these problems will fade into the background once the regime is defeated.
We can't let that happen.
