Republic Day! 28 May 2020

Republic Day!

Republic Day honors the date on which the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic (ADR) was founded as the first secular democratic state in the East – 28 May 1918. Today we mark the 102nd anniversary of its establishment! Among the important accomplishments of the ADR was the extension of suffrage to women, making Azerbaijan one of the first countries in the world, and the very first Muslim-majority nation to grant women equal political rights!
