The Women’s Rights Centre was established in1994 in Warsaw to advocate for equal status and opportunities for women and men in public life and private sphere and to develop support for women seeking legal and psychological help.
The Center’s philosophy and activities reflect the beliefs that women’s rights are integral and indivisible part of fundamental human rights. Equality between men and women is a necessary precondition for building democracy and to realize their potential and to attain their goals in the public sphere, in employment, and in their personal life. We act against discrimination and all kinds of violence against women. Physical, sexual or psychological abuse violates human rights and fundamental freedoms, and is an obstacle to achieving gender equality. The main goals of the Center is to raise women’s awareness of their rights by providing legal assistance to women and educate and sensitize society about gender, discrimination and violence against women. We run activities aim to educate all society about gender issues by organizing conferences, workshops and collaboration with all social partners.
In our everyday activities we provide legal counseling and psychological support to women who are victims of discrimination and violence, unemployed.
From 1999 when the branch of WRC in Łódź was established we have provided support for more than 20 thousand of women.
