Diotima Centre, on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, is expanding its awareness campaign “See the bigger picture!”
The campaign includes the production/broadcasting of a TV spot, the creation of an informative quiz for young people, in particular, the publication of brochures, as well as publications in the printed and electronic press and social media.
With the campaign, we attempt to inform and raise awareness among wider groups of citizens about gender-based violence and its consequences and to defend women’s right to life and safety, protection from violence/trafficking, and the right to a fair trial.
The campaign is part of the “Legal Aid for Women Victims of Gender-Based Violence” program, implemented by the Diotima Centre to support economically vulnerable women (indigenous and migrant women) who are unable in times of crisis and extreme poverty to defend themselves and claim their rights before the courts.
The aim is to support and legally represent the beneficiaries, to acquire knowledge and skills to manage their legal rights (legal literacy), and to free themselves from the consequences of violence.
The project is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway under the “We are all Citizens” Programme, which is part of the overall EEA Financial Mechanism for Greece, known as EEA Grants. The Grant Manager of the Programme is the Bodossaki Foundation. The aim of the overall Programme is to empower civil society in our country and to strengthen social justice, democracy, and sustainable development.
