Georgia: Men Can Wash Their Own Feet

Categories: Central Asia & Caucasus, Armenia, Georgia, Digital Activism, Ethnicity & Race, LGBTQ+, Religion, Women & Gender

Making Connections not only posts a recent video by Georgian bloggers against homophobia [1], but also one calling for gender equality in the South Caucasus country. The blog notes that the second video, featuring Georgian men saying they can wash their own feet, is in response to a comment by the country's religious leader, Catholicos Patriarch Ilia II, declaring that this was the responsibility of women who should stay at home to do so [2]. The Yerevan-based blog hopes that activists in Armenia will follow the example of such online campaigns.
