Over 150 women received legal and psychosocial assistance in 2021, with the help of the Bodossaki Foundation.
The purpose of the help desk is to give survivors of sexual violence access to useful information, but also to the Diotima Center’s support services.
The Diotima Center participated in the Special Permanent Committee on Equality on “Domestic violence in the time of the coronavirus”.
The program aims to provide free legal assistance to Greek women and immigrant women who are citizens or residents of Athens and have low incomes.
The seemingly small increase in domestic violence incidents in Greece, in the first month of the pandemic, should not be a cause for complacency.
The Diotima Centre is deeply concerned about the management of gender-based violence by police authorities in the midst of a pandemic.
