The Center for Girls was founded on April 15, 1998, on the initiative of two volunteers of SOS Helpline for Women and Children Victims of Violence. The aim of its foundation was to improve the social position of young women through their education and emancipation.
THE MISSION of the Center for Girls is girls' and young women's empowerment through education, activism and creativity.
Last night in the cafe Labeereint we performed the play "I am an emotional being" for the 19th time. Eight wonderful girls, aged 15-45, told the lyrics by Eve Ensler, in a dedicated, devoted, and emotional way. So far, 21 girls, members of the feminist-activist theatre of the Center for Girls, took part in the show.
We finished the campaign 16 days of activism in Vranje with the performance of the play "I am an emotional being". We thank the Director of the Centre for Social Work, Dragana Arsić and the representative Danijela Milosavljević for an opportunity to pass our messages to Vranje audience on the International Day of Human Rights. Texts on violence against women were heard by 80 people in the Army House.
The names of women who were killed in the last year in Serbia talked about the state of family and partner violence in Serbia from our bodies at today's street action. At least 28 women were killed by their husbands, partners, sons, ex-partners and grandchildren.
