Fighting for women’s rights, supporting disenfranchised groups, bringing forward unknown herstories, and publicizing issues connected to health and psychology is a daily commitment of the “Wysokie Obcasy” Magazine. We have been dedicated to these values for the last 20 years. We offer our promise that we will never stop standing for them.
In recent years, we have witnessed the importance of independent media – ones which are not afraid to speak out loud about issues and events such as the “black protests”, the problem of pedophilia in the Catholic Church, the burden imposed by single motherhood deprived of the proper state support, or the violence against women. In order to support independent and reliable journalism, we founded the “Wysokie Obcasy” Foundation. Through the Foundation we wish to engage in supporting social initiatives which protect and promote women’s rights.
The “Wysokie Obcasy” Foundation will focus primarily on activities aimed at dismantling discrimination based on gender, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity, beliefs, health and social status, and appearance both in Poland and at a global stage.
Twenty years is almost a generation. During this time both we and our readers have been constantly evolving. Together with you, we want to continue our efforts to create a better future for Polish women.
