This inevitably will be a very personal viewpoint, I realise others will have different likes and dislikes. Smoking is very common here, it is cheap compared to Western Europe and many smokers seem oblivious to those around them, it pains me to see people smoking around children. Smoking has recently been banned in public buildings which is good, although it often means smokers congregating around the exit, puffing away. The newer buses are better with air conditioning and less pollution. The forum was organised by the Municipal Service Providers’ Association of Georgia and the United Nations Development Programme . It was supported by the Government of Sweden and the International Republican Institute.

On May 26, 1918, the National Council of Georgia unilaterally seceded from the crumbling Russian Empire by passing The Act of Independence of Georgia givinng birth to the Democratic Republic of Georgia. Women in Georgia live in a society which has been changing over the centuries, where, after decades of Soviet regime, from the 1990s onwards, the culture has seen rapid social changes and new emerging values, but has also been affected by economic instability. Let’s be honest, the media situation in the Caucasus is grim.

Body Mass Index scores were calculated for all participants . Located on the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia, with a population of less than 4 million, Georgia is a small lower middle income country . After regaining independence in the 1990s, Georgia went through multiple wars and economic crises prompting large numbers of people to leave the country in search of economic prospects. With the oldest history of wine-making and a distinguished national cuisine, many cultural values of Georgia, including social interactions, revolve around eating and feasting (52–54). While EDs were considered non-existent in Georgia until the end of 20th century, later studies identified increased ED susceptibility . In addition, #PolitikaSHE provided a platform for Georgians, including those from traditionally marginalized communities like persons with disabilities, youth, and LGBTQ+, to join the conversation about women’s political participation. They raised their concerns and vocalized their support for more women in politics through comments and posts on Facebook.

The Women Councillors’ Forum was established in 2013, with support from UNDP and Sweden. It serves as a cooperation platform encouraging Georgian women to become more active in public life and local decision-making. The work of the Forum responds to the aspirations of almost two-thirds of Georgia’s population that, according to the UNDP’s survey, think that greater involvement of women in politics would benefit the country. The Labour Code of Georgia has certain protections for women. Pregnancy tests are available in at least one location in every county in Georgia, regardless of county residency. Urine pregnancy tests are completed by health department staff and results are provided within a few minutes.

The research examines widespread practices related to the personal data protection of LGBTQI+ people and provides recommendations for public agencies and the ci… 63% of women and 54% of men think that Georgia has yet to achieve gender equality. Through video interviews with women politicians, #PolitikaSHE showcased the benefit that increased women’s political participation would bring to Georgian politics, the contributions of women politicians to date and the ongoing challenges they face. #PolitikaSHE also provided women politicians with a platform to tell their stories and connect with citizens, given their limited access to other media outlets. Women who do run for office are disproportionately targeted with violence and harassment, particularly in the online space.

Culture Change and Eating Patterns: A Study of Georgian Women

Disordered eating patterns represent eating related unhealthy behaviors (e.g., excessive concern about weight and shape, excessive dieting, self-induced vomiting) that resemble Eating Disorders but are exhibited in a smaller degree in terms of frequency and intensity . Traditionally believed to be affecting women of affluent societies , the prevalence of EDs has been increasing among diverse populations and cultures (4–8).

Cases of EDs in some parts of the world, e.g., the island of Curacao and South America, appeared very low primarily affecting elite groups exposed to North American and European influence , which further strengthened the hypothesis linking EDs with acculturation to Western culture and values. Women in Georgia are more likely employed in agricultural activities than men, making women’s incomes more vulnerable to climate variations, natural disasters, as well as exogenous price changes for produce. Moreover, women and girls are already overburdened by family, social, and economic responsibilities that could become even more acute during periods of climate crisis and external shocks.
