Domestic violence is seen as normal by the Romanian society, the victims considering that is useless to complain about the aggressor to the Police, because there are no legal measures against them or they believe that there is their fault, and the family, relatives and friends are pretending they do not see this, without understanding the consequences of this violence on children and on the entire society. The project has as objective identifying concrete measures to help the victims of domestic violence and encourage them to take attitude and to get out of this abuse situation.
