Uzbekistan: Self-Defense Camp for Women and Girls

Uzbekistan: Self-Defense Camp for Women and Girls

Deadline: 12-Dec-22
The U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce a new round of Self-Defense Camp for Women and Girls in Tashkent in 2023.

To build the skills and confidence that women and girls need to protect themselves, the U.S. Embassy in Tashkent is launching a new round of self-defense camps for women and girls in Tashkent. The project will be done in collaboration with professional Self-Defense Instructors and a professional psychologist and member of the American Psychological Association—all alumni of U.S. exchange programs.

Personal safety should be your right no matter where you are, whether you are in your home, workplace, or on the street. Unfortunately, the fact that one in three women and girls experiences physical violence in their lifetime, most frequently by a person they know, is proof that this isn’t the case.

The problem is so widespread that, more likely than not, someone around you – a family member, neighbor, co-worker, friend, or even you yourself – has experienced this type of abuse. Unfortunately, harassment and stalking on the street is an everyday reality for women around the world.
