Fifth Women: Raising Awareness about Violence Against Women in Slovakia

Organization Name: Initiative Fifth Women

[Central and Eastern Europe - Slovakia]

OĽGA Pietruchová (second from right) launches the Fifth Woman campaign

Fifth Woman was the first nationwide campaign on violence against women (VAW) in Slovakia, and has had a profound impact on public opinion. The campaign was launched by seven local women's organizations with an active history of working in this arena.
Since the impact of the campaign was already evaluated, they focused their GEM evaluation on two particular issues: on the use of ICTs in the Campaign itself and gender differences in the resulting discussions about the issue of violence against women. To find out about gender differences in the feedback about the campaign and on the issue of VAW, they did content analysis of comments given in the online discussion on the Fifth Women campaign website (www.stopnasiliu.sk), and on the articles about the campaign published on the Internet.
The evaluation findings provide very useful information for organisers of the VAW campaigns, as well as for all activities involving communication about the issue of VAW with the public.Read more
