High Commissioner held speech at Second Eurasian Women’s Forum

"The High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation held a long applause after her speech at the plenary session of the Second Eurasian Women’s Forum. The Russian Ombudsman managed not only to find problem issues that affects women in many countries of the world, but also to show them how to heal them", — a number of foreign media outlets accompanied Tatiana Moskalkova with this comment.

"It is necessary to create special standards for the rights of women imprisoned in the detention facilities" — this proposal was a main message in the High Commissioner’s speech.

"I would like to draw attention to the fact that today we do not have special standards for the rights and freedoms of women who are imprisoned. In this context, we are not talking about gender equality, but about special preferences for women, because they are mothers", — Tatiana Moskalkova emphasized.

For example, for women there should not be the same severe penalties as for men. Everyone agrees with this statement, but this standard is constantly violated in a number of countries, for example, in Iraq and Syria.

"With regard to women, in my opinion, life imprisonment can not be used, it is a global standard, nevertheless, many Russian women today are sentenced to life imprisonment in Syria," Tatiana Moskalkova said.

The High Commissioner is convinced that the woman should be released to the child outside the colony, provided that she has a positive characteristic, and at the institution of pardon for women the real guarantors and standards for resocialization must be created.

"The idea of creating special standards for women’s rights, described by Tatiana Moskalkova, seems to me to be one of the most topical areas of the struggle for women’s rights", — that’s how the Philippine Consul in Russia described the High Commissioner’s words.

Dialogue with High Commissioner. Protecting children from cruelty

12 October 2018
Two cases that I will discuss today are striking to the depths of the soul. I have often said that childhood is a period in life when a person needs special protection and comprehensive support. It is impossible to imagine what people can be capable of if they refuse to help children, and even more if they are cruel to them. The chairperson of the "Association of Large Families",…
