On 18th November 2017, IW Club of Tricase- Santa Maria di Leuca, Italy celebrated the International Day to End Violence against Women with an important conference entitled ”NO MORE ALONE!”
The conference was under the sponsorship of the Italian Chamber of Deputy President, the Apulia Region, and the Municipal Authorities.
Inner Wheel and some of the most important Italian institutions for gender equality were together to send to as many women and men as possible an important message on the significance of “violence against women”, and also to give moral and juridical supports to all victims of violence and to say that a different way of life was luckily possible: they were not alone!
Dr. Serenella Molendini, National Counsellor for Gender Equality and Equal Opportunities, illustrated the alarming data about violence against women in the workplace, and how a woman can protect herself.
Dr. Giulia Sannolla, Regional Referent for Welfare spoke about many kinds of domestic violence and where and how a woman can find help.
Our commitment, as women and Inner Wheel members, is to be present and close to all women who are victims of violence and to make all the efforts to build a new society based on respect for all of the women.
