Cooperated within the framework of a prevention week at a vocational school in Beckum (Germany) the employees of the women's rights organization "Women helping women Beckum e. V." worked with 70 pupils and students on the topic of "Warning signs of domestic violence" and "Love is...". The basis for this is the campaign material "Warning signs" of the holding organization of autonomous woman advice centers North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany. This is based on the book by Rosalind Penfold "Dragonslippers: This Is What An Abuse Relationship Looks Like".
Objective of the concept of prevention is to raise awareness of the signs of a dangerous relationship and the promotion of skills to design a healthy partnership. At the end of the successful event, the students and the project leaders put a sign for a respectful partnership. The Orange bracelet stands for "Love is respect".
