March 15, 2024

At a gala event, the women's magazine "Die Burgenländerin" (in reference to the Austrian province of Burgenland) presented this year's awards to women from the region who are setting examples and leading the way on both small and large occasions. Ombudsperson Gaby Schwarz was delighted to receive the award in the category Society and Social Affairs. "In the Austrian Ombudsman Board and in Red Cross crisis intervention, countless women are there for others and help them every day. I dedicate my award to them!" Once again, she appeals to all women: "Be courageous and confident – you can do anything! Let's strengthen and support each other every day!"

In the future, Ombudsperson Gaby Schwarz will continue to campaign against violence against women, stand up against online hate, and work together with women and men to achieve actual equality in all areas of life.
