- Date: 26 February 7:00 - 19:00
- Location: Atrium
From February 26 to March 20, the exhibition Femicide will be on display at the Atrium The Hague. Every 8 days a woman is murdered in the Netherlands, often by her (ex)partner and almost always because she decides to leave the relationship. 6 in 10 femicide victims are killed by their (ex)partner. Women are disproportionately more often killed by their (ex-)partner or a family member than men. The exhibition femicide alerts, informs and gives a face to victims of deadly (ex-)partner violence against women and a voice to their survivors.
Foundation Open Mind, municipality of The Hague and the relatives of femicide victims join forces to bring attention to the red flags/signals that are part of partner violence and intimate terror, to inform the general public and to give tips from the relatives to victims, bystanders, professionals and society. In doing so, we hope to alert women in violent relationships, motivate them to get out of it with the right help, and reduce the number of femicide victims.
The exhibition has also been developed as an outdoor exhibit. From February 20 through March 12, it will be on display in Escamp. During The Hague Women's Day, the exhibition will also be on display in the Atrium. For more information about The Hague Women's Days, visit www.haagsevrouwendagen.nl.
