Association for Struggle Against Sexual Violence

Cinsel Şiddetle Mücadele Derneği (The Association for Struggle against Sexual Violence) was officially founded in 2014 and is the first and only rights-based organisation with a specific focus on sexual violence in Turkey. The organisation conducts training and campaigns with youth, the media, professionals and the public to raise awareness of the prevalence of sexual violence, dispel the myths surrounding victims of sexual violence, and ensure a more systematic handling of survivors.
