Campaign on the rights of woman survivors of violence and their children to access support and protection 

Powerful #StepUpWAVE Statements for 18th WAVE Conference

These expressive and powerful photos were taken for the Step Up! Campaign during the WAVE Conference 2016 in Berlin. One important topic dealt with during the conference was the current and differing implementation and ratification status of the Istanbul convention in the European countries. For the Step Up! Campaign we have laid out 20 important articles of the convention and printed them on large posters. The participants of the conference have been encouraged to comment on them in the space beneath, inform about the ratification status in their country, write down their opinion or simply show the world, that there is still need to rise against violence against women and we’re starting right now. Thank you so much for participating!
