INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY

March 8, 2016

Daughters of Wisdom
Province of Italy

In our country, we are currently witnessing the spread of violence towards women, violence often perpetrated by the very men who say they love them. Very young women are thrown into the streets after misleading promises of honest work…abandoned women…women of all origins and age, Italian women united in suffering. 
At the same time, there is increase awareness of the dignity of woman, her defense, her rights and the respect which is due to her.  
Institutions and Associations are mobilizing to help them, to adopt laws to protect and support women in difficult situations.  
In Italy, some Daughters of Wisdom work in this field bringing their collaboration with the public services, the health services, Caritas, the Office of Immigration, and the Bureau of Employment …etc.; let us listen to what these Sisters say: 

“We immediately welcome, listen, participate and accompany; we become close to those who are lost, wandering without purpose and who come knocking at the door. 
We stand as companions on the road where “together” we can catch a glimpse of light”
