Speakers Tour on the topic of "Violence against women at work" with Indian activists

From November 5-16, 2018, the two Indian speakers Mary Viyakula from the organization SAVE (Social Awareness and Voluntary Education) and Deepika Rao from CIVIDEP travelled on a lecture tour across Germany to report on gender-specific violence at the workplace in the Indian textile industry. They vividly described the vulnerable situation of women and reported about approaches how women workers in the garment industry can defend themselves and how we can support them.
