Combating Gender-Based Violence: The University of Bologna Opens Up a New Office to Fight and Prevent Violence Against Women

The University of Bologna in Italy has recently created an office to fight and prevent violence against women, and gender-based violence in general.


The new office is managed by the "Casa delle donne per non subire violenza Bologna", an association born from a group of feminist women who wanted to design an anti-violence center able to welcome and help women who suffered violence. 


This non-profit association opened its first centre in 1990 and is committed to combating all forms of gender violence. Moreover, it promotes activities related to cultural change, awareness, and prevention of violence against women and children.


The university’s office is aimed at those who suffer or have suffered violence, including all forms of gender discrimination, sexism, and harassment related to gender, identity, and sexual orientation. All the services offered by the office are free of charge, can be provided in English, and are guaranteed even at a distance through online MultiCampus coverage. 


Furthermore, the office can be accessed by all students, administrative-technical staff, teaching and research staff, collaborators of the University in different sectors, lecturers and readers, teaching and linguistic tutors, and research assistants. The whole community of the University of Bologna will also be able to count on this new support space for support when facing the different forms of violence that can occur both within the university context and outside, from partners, family members, acquaintances, or even strangers.


The office has been active online since Wednesday, October 12, 2022, and in person since the following Wednesday. The address is Via Ranzani, 14, Bologna, and the office is open every Wednesday from 12 pm to 7 pm. Moreover, besides being free, the office can be contacted via mail, phone or WhatsApp. All the relevant information can be found on the University’s webpage dedicated to the office.
