Never again secondary victimization of women victims of violence

The Project
The dramatic persistence of cultural prejudices and sexist stereotypes in courtrooms, in the media representation, in the wider social context leads to the re-victimization of women who have suffered violence, exposing them to further trauma and obstructing justice.

The NEVER AGAIN project, launched on 25 November 2020 and co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship program of the European Union, aims to strengthen a system response to the phenomenon of secondary victimization, proposing a national awareness campaign and a training model addressed to law enforcement officials, judicial professionals (lawyers, magistrates) and journalists.

Our goals
Transforming the approach and professional culture of the judiciary, law enforcement and media when dealing with domestic and gender-based violence, increasing awareness and understanding of the social and cultural roots of violence against women.
Contributing to a correct and effective application of international, European and national regulations in the prevention and contrast of secondary victimization.
Sensitize media professionals to the importance of changing dominant social representations of Violence against women in media reporting and storytelling, too often based on sensationalism and stereotyped models.
