Women in Abkhazia


Abkhaz women: One draped with the flag of the Republic of Abkhazia, and the other clothed with a dress that was designed based on the flag.

Abkhazian women, particularly those of older age, are traditionally portrayed as peacemakers, decision makers, and mediators in times of combat and conflict. The women in Abkhazia only have a marginal in number within the showground of Abkhazian politics[citation needed]. At present, the Abkhazian females are more active as participants in the realm of business and in activities related to establishing organizations for women in their country.[1][2]
