Macedonia: Amnesty International launches report on double discrimination against Romani women and girls
Amnesty International will present its report Little by little we women have learned our rights: the Macedonian government's failure to uphold the rights of Romani women and girls, focusing on the double discrimination that Romani women in Macedonia suffer on the grounds of their gender and their ethnicity.
This report examines the obstacles Romani women and girls face in accessing three basic human rights: the right to education, the right to work and the right to health.
