The Secretariat for Women’s Policies of the Federal District has launched a campaign to assist, welcome and protect women under threat of violence as a result of social isolation measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic declared by the World Health Organization (WHO).
According to the United Nations, they can suffer major impacts of domestic violence since many of them are unable to leave their home and stay isolated alongside their aggressors.
Through the slogan: “Woman, you are not alone”, the campaign informs that, even in isolation, women in the Federal District are not alone in that they can count on emergency services, call centers and the continuity of services that are already offered in the Federal District public system, even remotely.
Also, from now on, reports of domestic violence can be done through the Electronic Police Station, of the Civil Police of the Federal District (PCDF). The new form of registration through the digital platform is another tool for citizens in the face of the pandemic scenario.
