In 2008, in Kharkiv, with the support of the Ukrainian Women’s Fund, Global Fund for Women, Program of Equal Opportunities and Women’s Rights in Ukraine, the project “Let’s create a museum about ourselves” was launched, which aimed to create the first gender museum in Ukraine.
The main task of the museum is to collect exhibits that demonstrate the process of gender construction, to show that gender issues are not only the problems of women, but also of society as a whole; that, despite all the positive changes in society, both women and men continue to suffer from gender discrimination, that the women’s and gender movement in Ukraine and in the world is not an episodic phenomenon, but a natural and natural process that has been going on for centuries of history of mankind.
