Gender-based violence is something inherent in our social sphere. The government provisions seem not able to embank the problem and offer an effective aid.
Since the beginning of the year 80 women died in Italy because of feminicide. A woman dies every two days and, many women suffer constantly from violence without knowing how to ask for help, or to whom. There are no effective punishments for the aggressors and the murderes remaining un-imprisoned even after the reports, being a constant threat for every woman asking for help.
The laws don’t guarantee a real protection, and in situations of home violence there are often dynamic for which is difficult to find a way out from this condition. The report would be only another way to jeopardize your own life.
I remember their lives, their light and their vitality, interrupted by murderous hands. My body is a simple medium, annulled by their presence.
