In English

Association “Lygiai” is an independent, non-political, and non-profit organisation, established for the purpose of informing and encouraging discourse on gender equality, feminism, sexual right issues, such as: stalking, sextortion, abortion, gender violence, violence by proxy etc.

Association “Lygiai” has been running since May 2021, it is a relatively young NGO which originated from the Women’s March LT movement which was a supportive reactionary movement to the abortion ban being introduced in Poland in 2020. 

As an organisation from our inception, we have worked primarily in the fields of raising awareness, education, encouraging discourse (our representatives were invited to a round table discussion regarding gender-based violence in December last year at the Lithuanian Parliament). 

However, since the war in Ukraine began on February 24th, noticing that certain issues were not spoken about and were not being addressed publicly we have begun engaging in humanitarian aid activities. 

We have collected aid which is specifically required by women, and which was not spoken about at the time, and sent it to Ukraine as early as the first week of the war, as soon as we established logistic means to do so. 

We have raised money and have purchased morning after pills, sanitary products, and pregnancy tests, which we were informed about the shortage of for rape victims by volunteers of other organisations in Ukraine. 

We have also prepared an informative poster in Ukrainian with our partners in Lithuania and abroad, to make female refugees, who are a particularly vulnerable group right now, aware of the dangers of human trafficking that are present in border areas particularly in Poland due to the enormous flow of people. 

Currently we are working on three major projects in relation to the war to Ukraine:

  1. Women specific humanitarian aid (emergency contraception, pregnancy tests, anti-inflammatory medication, sanitary products).
  2. Organising psychological help for Ukrainian women currently in Lithuania.
  3. Raising funds for a mobile gynaecology unit to serve Ukrainian women in remote areas.
