Kazakhstan Feminist Initiative

The Kazakhstan Feminist Initiative "Feminita" is a human rights organisation working to protect the rights of women with limited physical and mental abilities, LBTIQ communities and sex workers. The organisation has been trying to register as a legal entity in Kazakhstan since December 2017.


Human rights defenders (HRDs) in Kazakhstan are faced with physical and verbal threats, acts of intimidation, judicial harassment, and arbitrary detention; their work continues to be hindered by legislative obstacles that vastly infringe on the rights to freedom of association, assembly, and expression, as well as human rights monitoring and promotion.
