Women in Arts: 25 stories of women artists in Ukraine
HeForShe is a solidarity movement launched by UN Women to engage men and boys as agents of change for gender equality. Every year during the HeForShe Arts Week, men and women, boys and girls engaged in the arts join the movement. In 2019, an independent award - Women in Arts - was established by UN Women Ukraine and the Ukrainian Institute, as part of the HeForShe Arts Week 2019 to draw attention to the achievement of women in the arts and to publicly thank them for their contribution to their industries.
