We are organizing the “Women on Bicycle in Traffic” workshop on December 16, 2017 with the Women on Bicycle Initiative.
The invitation for all women invited is as follows:
We all experience verbal or physical violence when driving in traffic, on the street, on the road. Do we know what to do when we encounter such cases? Is this the type of sexual violence we’ve been through? How should we approach this kind of situation?
The all-day workshop Expert Psychologist Merve Karabulut and Visual Communication Hilal Esmer will provide awareness training on the definition, basis, types, myths and facts of sexual violence.
* The workshop is limited to a quota of 20 people. The participants will meet their own food needs
Adres: Kadıköy Mecra – Caferağa Mahallesi, Dumlupınar Sk. No:5, 34710 Kadıköy/İstanbul
