Several studies about gender gap have shows how the lack of access to financial resources by women still persist nowadays. These obstacles prevent full economic autonomy, with no regard to employment, entrepreneurship or family support by the woman.
Violence is a cyclical phenomenon and it develops in three phases. The ignition of the “cycle of violence” is anticipated by a strategic behaviour, conducted by the man who intends to isolate the woman. He aims to break any significant bond that she has built with family and colleagues. Economic violence develops from this isolation phase, by restricting her power of economic manoeuvres and seizing her income. The woman could also be obliged to deposit her money on joint accounts, leaving her without any card or check. Without any mean to manage her own money and in the worst cases, the victim could be forced into using illicit ways to gain cash.
TRUST WOMAN CARE
Trust Woman Care was established on July 2016: the founders had the desire and moral duty to use part of their resources and energies to help the community. Pushed by experiences and heartfelt stories, they aim to contrast the culture of violence against women and promote activities that guarantee such position, through any lawful method, not only at the cultural and media level, but also with operative and social means:
The aim of the Trust consists exclusively in social solidarity, through charitable activities, according to Article 10, paragraph 1, letter A of the Legislative Decree December 4th, 1997 number 460 and subsequent amendments and additions (“NGO Laws”), and donations to NGOs of the same mission, gathered through specific capital management and former donations. The recipients must operate within the sectors defined in Article 10, paragraph 1, letter A of the NGO Laws, in order to promote useful, social projects and institutional and formative activities, according to Article 10, paragraph 2-bis of the NGO Laws.
