TERRE DES FEMMES breaks the silence about domestic violence during what is supposed to be the most peaceful time of the year
Berlin, December 18th 2020: TERRE DES FEMMES – Menschenrechte für die Frau e. V. opens the art exhibition "UNBREAK - take a closer look & break the cycle of domestic violence" (https://cloud.achtung.de/s/g7PanPkDDnf28pe) in downtown Munich, together with the agencies thjnk and achtung! Mary, the artist Simon Berger, and the long-time TERRE DES FEMMES activist Romy Stangl.
With this powerful campaign, the women's rights organisation wants to break the silence about domestic violence against women. In the middle of downtown Munich, a shop window is shattered in several places. What looks like vandalism at first glance, turns out to be the shattered face of a woman upon closer inspection. The shards of glass reveal the portrait of Romy Stangl, who was herself a victim of domestic violence.
"I freed myself from violence. In the process, I realized that I alone get to decide how I want my life to be and that only I can change it," Romy Stangl says. "I want to share this courage and confidence in myself with all women and stand by them in the fight against domestic violence."
If the viewer scans the QR code on site of the art installation with their smartphone, the work of art comes to life, albeit virtually. The peaceful mood of the video is disturbed by the cracking of the windowpane. Then, the image of Romy in the window comes to life and she addresses the viewers directly in the form of an AR animation. "Unfortunately, not everyone can have a silent night. During Christmas time and the pandemic especially, many women are affected by violence. And not just in dimly lit parks or at lonely train stations, but within their own four walls." This makes it all the more important to look closely, because everyone can help. The campaign website www.frauenrechte.de/schauhin shows exactly what this help can look like.
"This action is intended to draw attention to the fact that the Christmas holidays are not a quiet time for every woman," explains Sina Tonk, divisional director at TERRE DES FEMMES. "In fact, every fourth woman in Germany is affected by domestic violence. The timing of the campaign was deliberately chosen to span the weeks leading up to the end of the year because during the ongoing pandemic and especially around Christmas, the cases of domestic abuse increase. However, out of shame or fear, many women do not come forward to report these crimes."
Domestic violence is a universal phenomenon and takes place regardless of education level, income and origin. TERRE DES FEMMES has been committed to breaking the silence around domestic violence against women since its earliest days and aims to give a voice to those affected. The TERRE DES FEMMES "UNBREAK" campaign will run from December 10th, 2020, to January 6th, 2021, at Feilitzschstraße 15 (Café Occam Deli) in Munich and will call on passers-by to not look away when they see violence against women.

China Matters presents the story of Ms. Pan and her Mountaintop Guesthouse21.12.2020 15:30:25 CET | Pressemelding
As Pan Qingqing sips on a traditional Chinese tea, she glances out the window of her mountaintop guesthouse. The view is splendid with billowing clouds and valleys, and this is swiftly followed by laughter and loud chatter in the guesthouse where she is right in the middle of a jovial conversation with her guests who have made the trip to Xiangjian village in the southern city of Hangzhou. The 44-year-old is one of many in Lin’an District to have built guesthouses to attract more visitors from home and abroad. For her, this is an opportunity to bring changes to her hometown. And her plans have been supported by the Hangzhou government. The key to this change has been to combine the local surroundings with the arts to create something fresh where you wouldn’t expect it. And the guesthouses like Ms. Pan’s brings the two together. Bigger than life-size installations of bamboo art now decorate the halls. When guests sit down for an afternoon tea and food, cups and cutlery sets made from lo
