In Italy, one in three women report to have experienced physical or sexual abuse at some point in their lifetime. During epidemics and emergencies such as COVID-19, violence against women increases. Disruption of social support networks, heightened stress, isolation, and decreased access to services are making women everywhere more vulnerable. This year it is more important than ever to make your voice heard and stand against violence in all forms. (World Health Organization)

For the occasion of the  International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25th, the AIW is partnering with Caritas Modenese to produce a special series of masks to break the silence.
