Manifesto

This is a project that aims to generate new opportunities for survivors of violence in its various manifestations, including domestic violence, gender violence, harassment and/or discrimination.

The Rede de Pares aims to empower and facilitate the civic participation of these women through the creation of a Peer Network – an innovative tool for the intervention and prevention of Gender Violence.

Peer groups bring together women survivors of violence who want to make their views on how to develop and implement best practices, policies, and services more visible – supporting them to become self-representatives, and to be able, through their experiences, to transform the political, and social system and eradicate violence against women.

 

Survivors Network

To give visibility to the life stories of survivors of violence, to support these women, so that they can talk about their experiences and of other survivors who cannot speak – and thereby impacting and sensitizing young people and professionals, to inform the organization of services and policymaking. These are some of the objectives of the Peer Network/ Rede de Pares project.

The survivors participate in training and awareness-raising actions among young people and professionals from various institutions, helping to change beliefs and values associated with violence.

Youth Network

Primary prevention programs for violence against women and domestic violence should act as early as possible and in two respects: the empowerment of girls and women and, on the other hand, in the deconstruction of stereotypes of toxic masculinities among boys and men.

With the objective to maximize efficiency in communication with young people, the Rede de Pares project has the support of a group of young university students to conduct webinars, workshops, and other opportunities for interaction with other young students and young professionals.

About Us

The Rede de Pares Network is a project of Open Call#4 ‘Projects to improve the protection of victims of violence against women and domestic violence ‘, promoted by ISPA – APPsyCI, funded by the EAA Grants, and operated by the Commission for Citizenship and Gender Equality (IIC), in a partnership between the university and the community, aimed at promoting social justice and, in particular, the best articulation of systems to respond to violence against women.

The project also has four partners, local and community-based associations dedicated to supporting migrant, older and rural women, who act in a logic of proximity, have a fundamental role in the identification of these women: the Cabo-Verdiana Association of Setúbal, Casa do Brasil de Lisboa and Taipa in Portugal and WOMEN of Iceland.
