We in the Metropolitan Women’s Institute provide legal and psychological assistance to women who have been the victims of violence. The Public Prosecutor’s Office also refers to us cases of women victims of violence for psychological evaluation, and we send them by return a duly substantiated report drawn up by our multidisciplinary team of psychologists, lawyers and social workers.
Our mission is to achieve gender equality. We run workshops and talks aimed at stakeholders in civil society and for police forces on enforcing the law on women’s right to a life free of violence. In addition, we offer training to women through workshops intended to ensure they know their rights, in particular as regards equality between men and women, and workshops on developing an art or craft to become financially independent of their attackers.
Si Caracas logra consolidar sus fortalezas como metrópoli y no como simple agregado de municipios más o menos bien administrados, podrá ofrecer a todos sus habitantes niveles de calidad de vida compatibles con sus potencialidades, el progreso tecnológico y los modernos derechos de ciudanía.
