is part of it…
…still !


We are here for you! Every woman experiences situations in her life in which everything becomes too much or simply cannot go on.
A conversation can help.

Women often experience rejection, unequal treatment, devaluation and much more.

Many are not sure whether they are experiencing violence.
Violence occurs in many ways.

For example, it is violence if he

  • threatens
  • insults, humiliates
  • lockes up and monitores
  • controlles and keeps away from your friends and relatives
  • punches, pushes, kicks, chokes…
  • forces you to have sex
  • blackmailes and threatens to kill himself if you want to leave

We know that many of our clients have experienced various forms of violence.

Everyone has a right to a life without violence!
Get active!
Get help and support for yourself (and your children)!
