Violence against women is an even greater cause of ill health than traffic accidents and malaria combined. This is why we, as ESN Twente,  want to create awareness for the International Day of the Elimination of Violence Against Women, which the United Nations has declared to be the 25th of November. To do this, we created a guide with resources for anyone who has been a victim of violence or anyone who wishes to know more about this topic and how to help out. (The resources are suitable for both male and female people.) The following information applies within the Netherlands. If you feel like something is missing, kindly contact: housing [at]
