 Apart from the already traditional march of 8 March – “We March, we don’t celebrate”, which takes place in Prishtina and a few other municipalities of Kosovo, KWN member organizations and members of the Lobby for Gender Equality (LGE) organized a series of activities. On that day, Bliri Association, supported by the Municipality of Drenas, organized a fair which gave 40 women the opportunity to promote and sell their products. In addition, Bliri organized yet another activity for the citizens of Drenas, to donate blood at Drenas Family Medicine Center.
      Meanwhile, Lobby for Gender Equality organized a meeting in Dragash attended by the main actors of this municipality; a few demands were brought forward by women, related to refunctionalization of the Daily Center in Dragash, employment of a gynecologist in Dragash, and inclusion of women in decision-making roles.
     “We will not stop until these demands are fulfilled; if we receive no response until April, then we will initiate a petition”, Xhejrane Lokal, member of the Lobby for Gender Equality said.
        Among others, Hendifer Organization decided to join the march "MARCHing, not celebrating" by organizing such march in Prishtina. The march covered the distance from the House of Culture to the Municipal Assembly building.
