— Dear friends,

The Commission for Women’s Chess is truly grateful to the FIDE President Mr. Arkady Dvorkovich, the FIDE Council and the Management, for their decision to have declared 2022 the Year of the Woman in Chess.

This is our chance to take a leap forward in our mission of forming gender equity policies, practices and programs. In recent years, we have achieved a number of long-lasting strategic goals. From encouraging women to actively participate in all aspects of chess life by offering them free educational seminars, to implementing gender quotas for various official positions and assignments.

Eva Repkova
 Chair of FIDE Women’s Commission
