Too many young women (and minorities) are being victim of psychological and physical abuse in what are perceived as safe locations (school, home, family, sports groups, religious groups, public transport etc…) . The lasting symptoms and effects on body & mind are terrifying.
We believe this is not a dead end, and can be reverse through awareness and education.
When I met Mihalis Psyllakos (self defense instructor) last April, we soon realised our common vision to Protect Young Women (& other minorities) from Physical and Psychological abuse & Help in Recovery.
The Purple Roses project was born.
Since then, 2 workshops took place, in Greece and the Netherlands.
The next one is coming up on 15.01 at a Municipality of north Athens.
We will be joined by local police authorities, psychologist, lawyer etc.
Hope to see you there !
Purple Roses Team
