Terres des femmes
Issue 44 | September 2017
Statistics say that domestic violence affects 1 in 4 women in Germany, once or repeatedly in their lifetime. Unfortunately, people pay little attention to statistics - they feel abstract and that's something that only happens to others. Terre des Femmes - a Berlin-based women's rights organization - wants to raise awareness for the shocking numbers of domestic violence in Germany and encourage people to break the silence and seek help, in case they're experiencing abuse or know someone who is.
