Präsenz-Workshop: Stop hitting on me! Empowerment and self-defense workshop for women with an international, migrant and/or refugee background

Many women are exposed to sexualized and/or racist assaults against women in everyday life. No matter whether intrusive looks, insinuating comments or jokes, the display of obscene images or even physical assaults lead to these border crossings - a feeling of helplessness often sets in when these own borders are crossed. Sexualized and/or racist assaults and border crossings happen on the street, in the family, but also in the university. The goal of this empowerment workshop is self-assertion. The better this is achieved, the less often physical self-defense is necessary. In addition, participants learn the basic elements of Wendo. Wendo is directed against various assaults against women and supports them in standing up for themselves.

Contents of the course:

  • Basic exercises on breathing, voice, stance and balance
  • Movement and reaction exercises
  • Perception exercises
  • Simple and effective kicks, punches and liberation techniques
  • Body language exercises


Target group: International female students as well as female students with migration and/or refugee background of the Viadrina. If necessary and depending on available places, other female students of the Viadrina are welcome to participate in the workshop.
