On February 17, 2021, an online working meeting, chaired by Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Kateryna Pavlichenko, was held, during which participants discussed the organization and holding of celebrations on the occasion of International Women's Day.

During the online meeting, the floor was kept by the Government Ombudsman for Gender Policy Kateryna Levchenko, the Head of the UN Women Office in Ukraine Erika Kvapilova, as well as representatives of structural units of the security and defense sector.

On behalf of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, the head of the gender equality sector Yulia Maligonovo took part in the discussion.

She stressed that it is especially important to celebrate International Women's Day on the theme “Women's Leadership: Approaching an Equal Future in the World During a Pandemic”, defined in 2021 by UN Women in Ukraine, for women in the security and defense sector, because they break stereotypes and embrace professions inherent in women.

In particular, women in the SES system prove by their own example that a woman can be a leader and lead. Thus, 1,175 women hold senior positions in the bodies and divisions of the SES, and 49.0% of positions in the staff are held by women.

“The State Emergency Service fully supports the desire of women to join the the ranks of SES. Our women hold the positions of divers, cynologists, doctors, chemists, chiefs of guards and even fire brigades. The SES pays attention to the professional qualities of our women, their rights and personal achievements, sincerely appreciates the contribution of our women to the protection of the country and security, rejoices at the implementation of gender integration in our department. Consequently, the SES has introduced uniform, gender-non-discriminatory conditions of service, and civil defense educational institutions accept girls on an equal basis with boys, ”Yulia Maligonova said.

International Women's Day is another great occasion to recognize the intelligence, wisdom, generosity and achievements of Ukrainian women, so the SES has planned a number of traditional events to celebrate the Eighth of March.
