The current corona pandemic affects our lives on all levels. It can lead to new cases of discrimination and dependency or make existing ones worse. Are you experiencing domestic abuse, do you feel overwhelmed by caretaker responsibilities, or have you been subjected to any form of harassment?
We are here for you with advice and support. The best way for us to currently help you is via email. Please do not hesitate to contact us!

Consultation Offer

Are you being or have you been sexually discriminated against, sexually harrassed, stalked, or bullied? Do you have other gender-specific concerns, including those related to being in a dependent relationship?

While "Women's Office" and "Women's Representatives" seem to clearly address a specific group of people, we are more than happy to advise people of all genders on these topics. 

Moreover, we provide support and advice in both English and German. Please do not hesitate to contact us just because of your German-language skills.

All matters are treated confidentially. 

Your first contact person is the Women's Representative of your faculty. Here are their contact details.
