• Two Bulgarian women have filed a complaint to the European Court of Human Rights against their own country, whose authorities refused to register their ‘marriage’ concluded in the United Kingdom.
It is often the case that the exercise of women’s rights is hindered by the ideological approach to their very concept. The gender perspective often leads to misrepresentations which are primarily rooted in the perception of gender merely as a social construct, detached from its biological dimension. The 2nd Conference on Defending Women’s Rights, which featured female representatives from the spheres of science, politics, and social studies from across several countries, was devoted to precisely these issues.
On Thursday, 12th November 2020, Ordo Iuris Institute hosted the Defending Women’s Rights Conference, opening the series of periodic debates. Two panels, which opened the whole cycle of discussions concerning this subject, dealt with the issue of political and doctrinal context of the discussion on women’s rights, also mentioning the topic of women’s right to health. The main target of the Conference was analyzing the problem of women’s rights in a non-ideological way.
The 64th Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women was intended to take place in March and hailed as a breakthrough in regard to the implementation of pro-abortion and pro-gender-ideologies.
Ordo Iuris points out that the Commission on the Status of Women, which is a UN body, under the guise of "strengthening women" intends to promote the ideological "gender struggle" and abortive killing of unborn children. At the same time, it marginalises mothers who devote themselves to bringing up their children.
