Many women see themselves exposed to sexualized and / or racist attacks against women in everyday life. Regardless of whether intrusive looks, suggestive comments or jokes, showing obscene representations or even physical assaults lead to these border crossings - a feeling of helplessness often arises. Sexualized and / or racist attacks and border crossings happen on the street, in the family, but also in the university. The aim of this empowerment workshop is self-assertion. The better this succeeds, the less often physical self-defense is necessary.
In addition, participants learn the basic elements of Wendo. Wendo is directed against various attacks against women and supports them in standing up for themselves.
