Opposition female MPs of the Parliament of Georgia join the campaign against violence against women and call on the Parliament to bring the definition of rape in legislation in line with the standards set by the civilized world.

Ana Natsvlishvili, a member of Lelo, made a statement on this issue at a briefing in parliament. Deputies also joined the statement: Khatia Dekanoidze, Ana Buchukuri, Khatuna Samnidze and Tamar Kordzaia.

"We call on male politicians to raise their voice against violence. Of course, the role of Parliament in this process is very important, because today we are faced with a very important issue – in the 21st century, sexual violence and its worst form – rape in Georgian legislation does not meet the standards set by the civilized world. Despite numerous attempts, the system resists introducing a civilized, fair and correct definition of this crime into the law. We call on the Parliament to take this step immediately", said Ana Natsvlishvili.
