This year’s International Day against Violence against Women was also the occasion for a campaign with a wide reach: Starting with billboards in the major and/or state capitals of Berlin, Dresden, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Hanover, Leipzig, Munich and Stuttgart, we brought German Femicides to the attention of the general public.

It is neither the task of civil society, nor that of private companies or even of sports clubs to demand the implementation of the Istanbul Convention with a campaign – raising awareness is just as much a state obligation as the realization of the international treaty that has been legally binding for Germany since February 01, 2018.

It is all the more great that the first division soccer club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim has clearly positioned itself on our side in our demands to the German government. THANK YOU to the teams of STRÖER SE & Co. KGaA and TSG 1899 Hoffenheim for your stance – thank you for making this possible!

A very big thank you to the Berlin Bar Association for allowing me to exceed the specified character limit with this text in order to concretize the deeply rooted, structural, traditional, male violence against women and the connections on the basis of German femicides in an unabridged way. In addition, the article was released without a paywall just in time for International Women’s Day, so that it is now freely accessible to all.
