On 11th of December 2023, the activists of LET Station organized a field action in the center of Prilep, with the aim of distributing promotional material to raise public awareness and encourage reflection on the individual and collective contribution to the fight to prevent gender-based violence.
As a conclusion of the campaign “16 days of activism against gender-based violence”, the activists talked to the citizens about the importance of recognizing, preventing and sanctioning this frequent form of violence.
It is particularly important to point out that:
“All victims of gender-based violence do not look the same!” Some are modest, quiet and withdrawn, some are poor and uneducated, some are well off, educated, have successful careers, can be loud and active. What they all have in common is that they all need help. Help, which she herself may not have the courage to ask for.
Therefore, gender justice activists working on the ground are very important in recognizing, identifying and providing first aid to victims, the first step that can get them out of the cycle of violence.”
The activity was realized with the support of the Municipality of Prilep within the framework of the project: “Legal empowerment and support of the most marginalized”.
