The 25th of November was the International day for the elimination of violence against women, so on the 27th of November we decided to organize an event that wanted to raise awareness about this topic.
We did a meeting at the library in Buje and we read some parts of an Italian book called “Questo non è amore” (This is not love) written by some journalists of Corriere della sera newspaper. This book talks about some real stories of women who have suffered violence from their partners and fathers.
Then we had a discussion with the participants(mostly women) who gave their personal opinions about the topic and the stories of the book.
It was interesting to see how women were feeling involved and how great was the participation on the discussion.
We hope, in the future, to make something similar for other important topics.
