Report to the UN Special Rapporteur on violence against women about reproductive rights violations against Roma women in Slovakia

Published: 05 / 17 / 2019 17:01

In May 2019 we sent the UN Special Rapporteur on violence against women information about reproductive rights violations against Roma women in Slovakia.

In our report we are informing about existing mistreatment and violence against Roma women during reproductive health care as well as serious barriers for injured Roma women to get justice in such cases.  

We specifically point out at the situation of forcibly sterilized Roma women and emphasize the responsibility of the Slovak Government to redress them.
