Domestic Violence is a Collective Issue

A set of posters—one in English, one in Greek—to raise awareness for the issue of domestic violence during quarantine. The poster contains a description of the situation of those for whom "being with our families or partners is just as threatening as being out there" and argues that the issue of domestic violence is not a private matter but requires a collective response. It also offers a few strategies for people experiencing and/or witnessing domestic violence. The background shows an illustration of a woman, standing on a balcony, glancing over her shoulder.
