I’ve been advocating for women’s human rights for two decades, I’ve worked for international organisations, including the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the OSCE Mission to Moldova, the United Nations Development Programme, etc. Due to the knowledge and the experience that I’ve got, I can promote and protect women’s human rights and mitigate domestic violence.
I’m passionate about what I’m doing at Women’s Law Centre, a powerful and vibrant organisation established by women for women. We decided to offer to the women from the Republic of Moldova that high protection and safety that women from other countries enjoy, and to make Moldova a better place.
