DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN MONACO
GenderHopes, along with its partner Femmes Leaders Mondiales Monaco (FLMM) has completed a domestic violence research project in Monaco. The project included research and interviews with relevant actors, including governmental entities, police, hospital and victims.

On 25 November 2013, to mark the International Day to End Violence Against Women, GenderHopes and FLMM launched the first support website for victims of domestic violence in Monaco. www.MonacoSaysNoToViolence.org (in English and French) aims to support and inform individuals of the resources available to them in Monaco. In 2014, we launched a brochure to inform victims of their rights. Please email us if you would like copies.

In 2016, GenderHopes and FLMM are planning, along with the government, a nation-wide campaign to raise awareness on domestic violence.
