“I am working with Ministers, MPs, and activists to promote women’s rights and ensure that women’s perspectives are heard at all levels. Fantastic that women achieved universal suffrage in Azerbaijan 9 years before the United Kingdom, but there’s still a lot to do to achieve equality, the British Minister of State for European Neighborhood Wendy Morton who is on a visit to Azerbaijan made a post on Twitter, APA reports.
She added that she was humbled to meet survivors of domestic abuse today and hear their stories.
“Gender-based violence is a huge global issue. Excellent that Azerbaijan has a National Action Plan to tackle domestic violence . I strongly encourage Azerbaijan to sign the Istanbul Convention as soon as possible” noted Wendy Morton.
