Women in Cyprus face few opportunities for public participation, low levels of political representation and educational achievement, high levels of sexual violence, and consistent obstruction of reproductive rights.

Strict traditional gender roles continue to subjugate women in Cyprus, contributing to the devastatingly low conviction rates for sexual violence crimes, and few services for survivors.

Based on the work of NGOWG members and their partners, the NGOWG advocates for full inclusion of women as full and equal partners in the continuing efforts to resolve long-standing disputes between Turkey and Greece, as well as encouraging Cyprus to develop a national action plan in accordance with Resolution 1325.
