Gender equality

Gender equality is a human right. It is also essential for eradicating poverty and improving the lives of future generations. Gender equality is at the heart of all our programming and advocacy work. IPPF pushes for legal and policy reforms which combat female genital mutilation (FGM), early forced marriage and other forms of gender discrimination.

Dragana grew up in socialist Yugoslavia and has been the Executive Director of the Serbian Association for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights for 12 years. A passionate advocate for gender equality, IPPF spoke to her about the challenges women and girls face in Serbia.
