Ida Bakhturidze became new winner of Kato Mikeladze Award for women human rights defenders and Nata Talikishvili received special prize this year.
This year Women’s Fund in Georgia decided to slightly change the format and consider only young women rights defenders in order to make their activities more visible for broader society and encourage their activism.
14 nominees shared their activism experience and emotions to the attendees of the event, held on November 29th, International Day of Women Human Rights Defenders. Since establishing the Kato Mikeladze Award in 2013, Women's Fund in Georgia awards one women's rights activist each year on November 29th, the International Women Human Rights Defenders Day.
The event was supported by: UNDP Georgia, UN Women Georgia; Sigrid Rausing Trust and Mama Cash.
