International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women/ Gender-based violence

In Germany, according to the Federal Crime Statistics (2020), every second to third day a woman dies murdered by her (ex-)partner. Neither the nationality nor the educational background of those involved play a role. In October 2022, two women from Dresden were killed in this way. This phenomenon is called femicide and belongs to the very top of the iceberg of forms of violence against women or gender-based violence.

On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November, TU Dresden is repeatedly organising a diverse programme of events from 11 to 25 November to raise awareness of this serious social problem. All events are free of charge for participants.
Last year, the events already served to get to know various associations and actors in Dresden, such as the D.I.K., the Men's Network Dresden or Gerede e.V..

If you are looking for support as a person affected or involved, please contact the Gender Equality and Women's Officer at TU Dresden, Dr. Jutta Eckhardt, or the queer peer counselling, Fay Uhlmann.

Funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Freestate of Saxony under the Excellence Strategy of the Federal Government and the Länder
