Organisation: Association SOS Help-line for Women and Children – Victims of Violence
What makes me angry about patriarchy: The belief that it is possible to understand women from men’s standards.
My areas of expertise when it comes to VAWG:
International law, especially CEDAW, VAW in partnerships
Key issues when it comes to VAWG in your country/organization that the other EWL Observatory experts need to know.
Domestic violence – gender neutral, Istanbul convention, Family violence prevention act
Explain briefly your daily work as if you were to explain it to a 12 years old:
I need to explain to different people that also work for TV and newspapers and give us different information that nobody is allowed to hit another person or insult her. Women and children are more often being insulted and beaten. And for that work I need to find money.
If you could change one thing for women, what would that be: Universal education.
