Addressing the event, PhD Mail Yagub highlighted the history and development of feminism in the West, as well as approaches to feminist ideas in the Muslim East, especially in Azerbaijan. He said that the violence against women could be reduced not only through legal means, but also through education. Pointing out sufficient legal base in Azerbaijan in this sphere, Mail Yagub noted that not only legal institutions, but also the whole society, especially the intellectuals should organize awareness -raising campaigns in order to address this problem.
