Monaco stands up to violence against women

Monaco stands up to violence against women

By Staff Writer - November 9, 2017

The Principality of Monaco is once again supporting International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25.

The general public will be able to attend a free talk by Dr Marie-France Hirigoyen, a psychiatrist specialised in psychological violence and author of many books on the subject, including “Stalking the Soul: Emotional Abuse and the Erosion of Identity.” The topic of her discourse in Monaco will be: “Violence in couples: Why don’t women leave?”

The event is planned for Thursday, November 23, at 6pm, at the Auditorium of the Lycée Technique et Hôtelier de Monaco in the Condamine.

From November 25 through 10 December (Human Rights Day), the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence aim to raise public awareness and mobilising people everywhere to bring about change.

As part of this initiative, the UN Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign invites you to “Orange the World,” using the colour designated by the UNiTE campaign to symbolise a brighter future without violence. Support the campaign by adding the hashtag #orangetheworld on social media.

A reminder that there is a free and anonymous helpline on Mondays from 9 am to noon – 116 919 – for victims of violence, as well as additional assistance available in Monaco.
