The 2018 theme for International Women’s Day is “Time is Now: Rural and urban activists transforming women’s lives.”

On the occasion of this global celebration of women, the EU-UN Women regional programme “Implementing Norms, Changing Minds,” which partners with 48 civil society organizations in the Western Balkans and Turkey, has created an interactive map showcasing some of the brave women working to end discrimination and violence in the region.

The map celebrates the work and voices of the activists who are working relentlessly to claim women’s rights and help them realize their full potential.
