- Society should have information on how to act in case of violence, how to help the victim. The more people are informed, the more effective the response will be - this is the general opinion of the meeting participants.

Informing is an important segment in the work of the Women Support Centers, on the basis of which the problem is identified and further response is made. The meetings held in the Women Support Centers of Terjola, Kobuleti and Samtredia have already brought results: women, together with the mobilizers of the centers, are working to protect their rights and receive existing services.

Family conflicts, violence against women, victim protection mechanisms - meetings on these issues were held in the Women Support Centers of Vani, Senaki, Kobuleti, Terjola and Zugdidi.

Participants noted that openness on the facts of domestic violence has been increased, but at the same time, active work is still necessary to inform the population, since many do not know how to respond in case of violence, what is their responsibility.

Participants believe that such meetings are necessary to fill the information vacuum, and to make society ready to resist violence.
