Evdokia Romanova is awarded Martine Anstett 2019 Prize!

Evdokia Romanova was born in 1990 in Kuibishev (Samara since 1991) in the USSR.
Her fight for human rights focuses on, among others, people with disabilities, women's rights and the rights of refugees. She is a member of the LGBT Rights Movement, Avers, which provides legal and psychological support to the LGBT community and advocates for the rights of other LGBT groups.
On 18 October 2017, she was prosecuted for an administrative offense of "propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations between minors using the Internet".
This was based on articles she shared on her private Facebook page in 2015 and 2016.
