"At a global level, around 81,000 women and girls were killed in 2020, some 47,000 of them, (that is to say, the 58%), at the hands of their partners or family members."(sic)

"Women who have a low level of education have been exposed to acts of intimate partner violence against their mothers, have been subjected to ill-treatment during childhood, have lived in environments that are accepting violence, male privilege, and the condition of subordination of women are at a greater risk of being victims of intimate partner violence"(sic)

For this reason, and because our director was part of the statistics, our organization feels committed to educate and make reflection on these topics.
