Campaign against sexualised discrimination and violence

Campaign of the Univesität Kassel for the protection against sexualized discrimination and violence

From Nov. 25, 2022, the "International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women," to March 8, 2023, events and awareness-raising workshops will be held under the slogan STOP THE SCWEIGEN! events and awareness-raising workshops will be held. Informational materials in the form of stickers, posters and door hangers will be distributed university-wide, and there will be information booths in front of the dining halls.


Sexualized violence is an issue in the university context - recognize and act: Together at the University of Kassel

Universities are not exempt from sexualized discrimination and violence. With the campaign STOP THE SILENCE! the University of Kassel wants to contribute to making it possible to talk about sexualized discrimination and violence, to sensitize everyone to the topic, to do prevention and education work and to offer help in case of assaults.
