Institute to set up diversity council

The M. R. Štefánik Conservative Institute of is going to establish a Non-governmental Council for Natural Diversity (MRPR).

The move is in reaction to the October 11 cabinet session, which was expected to approve a Cabinet Council for Gender Equality.

This summer, the institute and other organisations led a collective protest against the establishment of this council. However as nothing has changed with the basic focus and tasks set for the council, the institute resolved to promote its opinions through MRPR activities.

The MRPR will bring together individuals and organisations that do not agree with artificial interventions in natural differences between men and women, breaching traditional institutions, and so on.
