Name of the organization

Beratungsstelle TARA – The advice center TARA

Type of organization

Non profit organization

Activities implemented to fight gender-based violence (in english)

The advice center TARA was founded in 1984 as an “”emergency call for raped women and girls””, later under the title “”Women’s Emergency Call””. Since 2002 , our institution has a new name: “”Tara”” was found in the course of a Styrian competition and refers to a Tibetan female figure, which occurs, inter alia, in other cultures. It stands, among other things, for healing, purifying and compassionate forces, which should free from pain and bring hope and joy back into life. We are a partisan feminist institution. This means, among other things, that we do not see sexualised violence as an individual problem, but as part of a social structure that favors the discrimination of and violence against women and children.
