State Committee: There were no feminists in Azerbaijan because we got rights on a par with men

“Exactly 101 years ago, women in Azerbaijan got the right to elect and be elected. There is nothing unusual here,” chairperson of the Azerbaijani State Committee for Family, Women and Children Affairs Hijran Huseynova said at the international conference on "The role of women of the Turkic world in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals."

“Many European countries have given women this right following Azerbaijan. Azerbaijani women have passed a successful path in social and political life. At international conferences, I often emphasize that there were no freedwomen in Azerbaijan. Because we got our rights on a par with men. Therefore, it is not necessary to fight in this area, ” H. Huseynova stressed.
