Greek President Inaugurates Center for the Fight against Gender-Based Violence

December 14, 2021

ATHENS – The President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou inagurated earlier on Tuesday the Center for the Fight against Gender-Based Violence of the Municipality of Athens underlining that it constitutes a great initiative that fully corresponds to the continuously increasing need for information services, support, legal representation and hosting of the victims by promoting the importance of the solidarity mechanisms and creating models of collective responsibility.

“We are experiencing a period of high tension. The pandemic, the change of our everyday life to the worse, the insecurity, the households’ financial problems are creating explosive conditions. Violence in all its forms is spreading everywhere, at schools, in families”.

She wished to the scientists and employees of the centre to work in order for this newly founded centre to operate as a place of safety, of freedom and autonomy for those that need it so much.
