Have you ever asked yourself what is a shelter for you? By definition a shelter is a structure that provides protection from danger, but for some women a shelter is the bonding between them that makes them feel protected!
Where are you from?
Who haven’t been asked at least once in their life “Where are you from?”. But for some the answer opens questions for a broader discussion.

“Send a postcard to end violence against women” a campaign by maboula collective
On social media share the postcards, tag people on them be part of the debate on #womeninbetween on how to end #ViolenceAgainstWomen or reblog to spread the word. For the next 7 days we will upload a new one everyday. As we are only a week away from 25th of November – International day for the elimination of violence against women- we launch this campaign in order to invite everyone to reflect on violence and participate in the debate on how to end it. When we speak about violence against women we relate it mostly to physical, sexual violence, but violence has a lot more masks. It can also be psychological or in form of sexual and cyber harassment to name a few. We need to unveil all of those masks if we want to defeat it. The questions posed in the postcards have been isolated from the questionnaire of the FRA-EUROPE survey on violence against women that was contacted in 2014 and the results are alarming. We are aware that those questions may not stand alone as violent cases or draw results from the answers but we believe that they can set the base for a broader reflection and discussion on how violence is present in our everyday life in more ways than anyone could imagine.
