The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., organizes traditional festival International Day of Roma Women on the occassion of International Roma Day.

Festival International Day of Roma Women will take place between Thursday, 4th April and Tuesday 9th April on various locations. On the International Roma Day we will over several days host a cultural-educational programme, which includes Roma culture and intercultural coexistence. Traditionally we focus on position of Roma women and their independence. Thus we have named the event International Day of Roman Women. We put extra emphasis on gender equality on all levels.

During the festival, the Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., in cooperation with the Society for Support of Young Roma, Soc. Ent., did a survey on quality of life of Roma women. Other included countries, beside Slovenia, were Italy, Bulgaria and Macedonia.
