The Zonta Club of Alytus, Lithuania, District 13, co-organized a screening of the documentary A Better Man, followed by an open discussion about domestic violence.
The film revealed hard consequences of physical abuse and a long and painful way towards healing. In the discussion, they talked about the differences between incidental and systematic violence and how to help victims.
Every year, 50,000 calls for help are received in Lithuania and 1,500 cases reach the court. The most important thing is not to remain indifferent, try to help, to ask, to inquire.
The club organized the event with Human Rights Portal, Lithuanian Center for Human Rights, Center for Equal Opportunities Development and Alytus City Women’s Crisis Center.
