Kyrgyzstan or Kirgizia

Now Kyrgyzstan stands on the way of changing, what kind of changes will be no one knows. We just hope.
I want you point your attention to the name of our country which can be Kyrgyzstan (masculine) and Kirgizia (female)and the female name is not popular here.
In different history circles woman in Kyrgyzstan took leading part. Now its next history circle when woman takes leading part even temporary, thought it doesn`t save her from the talks about woman participation in politics. Analyzing last two years I can see some positive changing’s in woman leadership for example: Umetalieva (first woman )who took part on the presidential elections or( Otumbaeva) Chair person of temporary government.
While working with Election Observers I noticed that men who heard rally were very attentive towards Umetalieva`s words thought , I think they didn’t vote for her because they couldn`t step over their stereotypes and male self rating.
However, the biggest part of Kyrgyz man are still the same, the don’t trust woman and they afraid to trust. Because they know that every Kyrgyz woman has a peace of Kyrmandjan Datka 
