With this purpose, the President of Uzbekistan adopted a Decree “On measures of radically improving activities in the sphere of supporting women and strengthening the family institution” on February 2, 2018.
Caring for women should always be at the forefront of all our efforts, become the most important task, said the Head of the state. Attention to a family is attention to people.
It was noted that activities of women’s committees are at an unsatisfactory level, insufficient attention is paid to helping women in a difficult social situation, preventing early marriages, divorces and female crime.
It is disturbing that in recent years the number of divorces has been growing by 10-11 percent annually. More than 31 thousand divorces were registered in 2017. The incidence of crimes committed by women is increasing.
A number of measures have been identified on addressing these and other problems, comprehensively supporting women in the aforementioned decree of the President of our country. The structure of women’s committees of the republic, regions, cities and districts has been radically improved.
