The Foundation is taking part in European-wide campaign launched by Women Against Violence Europe in 2016. Step Up! is a campaign on the rights of woman survivors of violence and their children to access support and protection that is not provided by the EU member states.
One out of three women in Europe is a victim of physical or sexual violence. There is a constant need for at least 47.000 places in women’s shelter and a helpline for women operates in only 15 out of 46 countries. Insufficient funds and limited access to professional help increases society’s tolerance towards gender-based violence.
We are therefore calling for an action and increase in expenditures for women’s help centers. Join the campaign to end gender-based violence! For more information on how to support us, please contact:
