OSCE familiarized employees of the Migration Service with the legislation of Turkmenistan on gender equality

On August 2-3, the OSCE Center in Ashgabat held a seminar in Avaza for employees of the State Migration Service of Turkmenistan and other relevant government agencies on the topic of gender equality, the press service of the Turkmen agency reported on August 3.

The participants were acquainted with the national legislation on equality between women and men, as well as the implementation of the National Action Plan of Turkmenistan on gender equality for 2021-2025.

“The participants of the event noted that Turkmenistan, being a full member of the UN, in accordance with international conventions and national legislation in this area, expands the rights and opportunities for women ,” the news says.

It should be noted that despite the existence of legislation, in practice the rights of women in Turkmenistan are regularly violated. By introducing unspoken rules and prohibitions, the authorities are trying to regulate the appearance and moral character of women who are periodically prohibited from using certain cosmetics and procedures, wearing “provocative” clothes, wearing jewelry, obtaining a driver’s license, and even sitting in the front seat in a car.
