Mission and objective

Violence against women and children is an expression of societal discrimination and power differences that express themselves in relationships. We also see our work as a contribution to the elimination of gender hierarchies.

The Frauenhaus offers women affected by violence and their children protected living space, help and support. In our work we strengthen and support women and children in their development process towards more autonomy.

We make “violence against women” a public, social and political issue. Our goal is to influence political decision-making and implementation so as to widen women’s scope for life and action.
