The ceremony began with the opening of the village door. Rumet Heval, Director of the Village Preparation Committee, said in her speech: “Today it is the Day of Struggle against Violence against Women. 25 November is a special day because it legitimizes women's resistance. After two years of work, we proved once again that women could manage themselves”.
