Domestic violence in wartime: raising awareness among journalists

Practical webinar and funding for journalists and media

Tuesday, August 16, 2022, 11:00-12:30
The link to Zoom will be communicated later registration

During war, victims rarely ask for help or dare to speak about their experiences. However, the war does not cancel the need to oppose domestic violence, as well as to talk about this problem in the Ukrainian media.

On August 16, 2022, at 11:00 a.m., a practical webinar for journalists "Domestic violence in conditions of war: raising the awareness of journalists" will be held online by the NGO "La Strada-Ukraine" and the NGO "Women in Media" with the support of International Media Support (IMS ).

During the webinar we will talk about the following:

  • Why do victims not often seek help and talk little about their experiences?
  • What is the complexity of responding to cases of gender-based violence, including domestic violence during wartime?
  • Is domestic violence expected to increase in the near future?
  • What cases of domestic violence are most often reported by victims?
  • What cases of gender-based violence are hardly reported by victims?
  • How does domestic violence during war affect children?
  • How should journalists work with the topic of domestic violence, adhering to standards and ethics?


  • Kateryna Pavlichenko, Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine
  • Tatiana Troshchynska, editor-in-chief of Hromadske Radio, finalist of the 2022 Georgy Gongadze Prize.
  • Alyona Kryvulyak, director of the National "hotlines" department of the NGO "La Strada-Ukraine".
