Director and Producer Gunter Schwaiger supports StoP because violence against women is a man’s problem. Not being violent ourselves does not absolve us of responsibility.
“14 femicides in 2021 (in Austria) and 7 in not even 30 days – a terrible record. Victims of domestic violence and partner violence need support. Raising awareness and sensitising people needed active participation of men! You too can join the StoP Men’s Table!
Last year, the StoP Men’s Table launched the campaign “Men show civil courage – Your statement against partner violence”. Here, men were called upon to make a clear statement against violence and to position themselves as allies. Günter Schwaiger supported us with his knowledge and know-how.”
