Bulgaria/ 4.2 Specific policy issues and recent debates  

4.2.10 Gender equality and cultural policies

Gender equality and culture is mainly on the agenda of NGOs. For example, the Bulgarian Gender Research Foundation is an independent NGO promoting social justice, gender equality and human rights through research, education, legislative changes and advocacy. The Open Society Foundation has a special Gender Programme which provided a total USD 255 584 in support of various projects in 1999-2001. Some NGOs deal specifically with the equal integration of women from the minority cultural communities - especially Roma women - into the mainstream life of Bulgarian society.
