On January 20, 2018 at 3 p.m. at the monument of Urkuya Saliyeva (at the crossing of Chui ave. and Sovetskaya street) young leaders-volunteers of the "Human Rights Movement: Bir Duino Kyrgyzstan" held a peaceful march in honor of the protection of women's rights in Kyrgyzstan. The purpose of this march was a vivid demonstration of disagreement between young people and unfair situations happening at the moment in the country: early marriages, bride kidnapping, polygamy, pedophilia, family and sexual violence, harassment at work, slavery and human trafficking. This action was also timed to coincide with the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Women's March, which was held around the world on January 20-21, 2018.
