Their hope is to inspire the same actions from women in Russia

On Sunday, 27 February, crowds of women gathered near the Russian Embassy in Lithuania's capital of Vilnius to protest Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Just one day after a spontaneous invitation by several famous Lithuanian women to protest Russia's aggression, thousands of people gathered in Vilnius and similar women's protests also took place in other Lithuanian cities.

The organisers said their goal was to encourage women around the world to stand with their Ukrainian counterparts, who are being forced to live through incredible pain and trauma caused by the war.

More specifically, they hope to appeal to Russian women to take an active stand against the unnecessary invasion in which their sons, brothers, and husbands are being sacrificed in vain.
