A European project aiming to facilitate access to prevention, protection and support for migrant women in Europe who are confronted with gender-based violence.
Migrant women face a continuum of gender violence. Among these, female genital mutilation, sexual violence, partner violence, marriage forced, human trafficking ... For each person, different needs.
On European soil, support services exist but are not always easy to access. There are many obstacles and in practice it is sometimes impossible to get help.
The goal of the ACCESS project is to improve the prevention, protection and support of migrant women in Europe facing different types of gender-based violence. The acronym "ACCESS" refers to the Appropriate Community-based Care and Empowering Support Services formula.
Being a woman doesn’t mean that you have to suffer.
Knowing that you’ll give birth safely, without potentially fatal complications.
Living without pain or having to go to the toilets all the time. Feeling pleasure instead of pain during sex. Pain. Bleeding. Incontinence. Complications. Infertility. Stress. Depression. Shock. Death. If you are hurting, it could be because of the cut, or other violences.
There are solutions to your problems. The law protects women. You are in this situation? You want a way out? Specialist services will support your fight for your own well-being. In all discretion.
