Recall Center of gender culture has opened recently in Kharkiv. The purpose of the project is to host a place where anyone, regardless of gender, age, social status, occupation and education can receive basic knowledge about gender issues, including human rights and gender-based discrimination.

Reference. FEMEN is a group of topless female activists. The organization became internationally known for organizing controversial topless protests against sex tourism, religious institutions, sexism, homophobia and other social, national and international topics.
