Last week EU Advisory Mission Ukraine (EUAM) experts, joined by the representatives of the Ukrainian Association of Women in Law Enforcement (UAWLE), visited Kyiv School #112 for an ‘open’ lesson on the occasion of the International Women’s Day to be marked on Sunday. After a brief introduction by EUAM’s Gender Adviser Agata Szymanska, the guests, one by one, shared their stories.

The nine- and ten-graders, attending the open lesson, were excited to hear about the work of a female prosecutor in Sweden (Petra Maansson from EUAM), female police officer in Ukraine (Olha Yuskevych from Kyiv Police/UAWLE), female community policing officer from Finland (Nina Pelkonen from EUAM), as well as one and only in Ukraine female diver & rescuer from the State Emergency Service (Oksana Chekhmestrenko, UAWLE).
