As of today, 97 women have been murdered in Germany in 2023 for the reason that they are women. These horrific acts are often trivialized as "family drama" or "marital crisis" and therefore do not receive the necessary attention within society as a whole.
These murders are part of patriarchal violence, which affects women worldwide to varying degrees, regardless of their origin, religion or age.
On 04.12.23 we want to look at the situation in Germany together with you. In 2006, Hatun Aynur Sürücü was murdered by her younger brother because she wanted to lead a self-determined life, free from traditional and religious constraints. We will be showing the film "NUR EINE FRAU", which depicts the life of those affected, and in doing so - together with you - we want to give Aynur and all other women affected a voice and ensure that they are not forgotten.
Afterwards, experts will discuss the topics of patriarchal violence - especially femicides and so-called honor killings - and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
Violence against women is not only important on International Day against Violence against Women (25.11), but on every day of the year. We would be delighted if you could join us in taking a stand against this very violence!This content has been machine translated.
