  • Empowering Women - Empowering Humanity

      It is necessary to fight violence against women in all its forms by carrying out focused actions on violence against women.
      It is essential that awareness raising efforts are carried out close to the ground and tailored to the particularities of the national situation and needs of organisations involved and their target groups.

      Violence against women is both a cause and consequence of gender inequalities.
      It is the most brutal form of discrimination on the basis of sex, and results from unequal power relations between women and men. Consequently, it hinders women from fully participating in the labour market, families and society at large.

      The training course aims to support EU organisations involved in developing and implementing practical and targeted information, communication and education activities aimed at preventing and combating violence against women and girls, in order to ultimately contribute to promoting gender equality in EU Member States.
      The training aims to spread a clear message of zero tolerance for violence against women.
      The training will focus on vulnerable groups of women and girls, such as (but not limited to) migrant and refugee women and girls, including those from Roma background.

      Why do we need to address violence against women?

      Domestic violence is increasingly becoming recognised by all countries and nations, according to the latest surveys as much as 1 in 3 women around Europe reported experiencing some form of domestic violence- physical, financial or sexual.

      Domestic violence affects women from all around the world, it effects not only the women and their families, but also their workplaces. As many as 20% of women had to take time off work due to domestic violence.

      In many countries it is still a hidden agenda, and many are still suffer in silence hence why it is important for us to know how to recognise the signs of domestic violence an to know what help is on offer.
