Saturday, the 20th of October, starting at 3PM, the march “Together for Women’s Safety” will take place in Bucharest. We will start from Universitatii Square, Parcul Coltea, and head towards Victoriei Square.
Join our March!
Let's say to all the women around us: YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Each and every action of condemning violence against women brings us closer to a world where women can live in safety.
We want to show our solidarity with all women who were or are forced to survive violence.
We want to publicly condemn violence against women and abusive behaviour. Every day we witness aggressions towards women that are not sanctioned; neither by the community nor by the state.
Women are prisoners in a culture of violence in which victims are systematically accused, stigmatised, blamed.
STATISTICS SHOW THAT:
- in 2017, 26% of murders took place within families (according to data from the Public Ministry, IGPR, INML); out of 36.245 domestic violence cases, only 4% reached court (1.491 indicted).
- 1 in 4 Romanian women have been physically or sexually abused by their partner (FRA, 2014).
- 90% of domestic abuse victims who ask for a protection order are women.
