The Practical guide to the most frequently asked legal issues of victims of gender violence is already available. This collaborative work between the Fernando Pombo Foundation and the Luz Casanova Foundation is a result of the 2nd Edition of the EXEQUO Project, that this year has been focused on the rights of women in risk of extreme vulnerability.

The guide deals with the most recurring legal issues of women who are victims of gender violence from a practical approach. On one side, this approach improves the understanding of the gender violence phenomena and, on the other, enables lawyers to address the problems that may appear in dealing with victims. In short, the Fernando Pombo Foundation looks for this guide to be a practical and efficient tool to lawyers that work with women who suffered from gender violence, in order to improve the fundamental support that must be offered during the whole legal procedure.
The Fernando Pombo Foundation has counted on the support of public entities, business, non-profit organizations and the Legal Clinic UNIR- Fernando Pombo Foundation. Also, more than 20 lawyers and other professionals from other disciplines have collaborated to the drafting of the guide.
The launching of the guide is also the launch of the documentary Ponte en su lugar (Walk in their shoes), created to make the legal profession aware of key and sometimes “invisible” issues that must be known to face gender-based violence.
