“Centre for Women Victims of War”
Numerous women’s groups and initiatives were active in Europe in order to support and show solidarity with Bosnian women, also throughout the former Yugoslavia. New initiatives included the “Women in Black” in Belgrade, Medica in Zenica, or the “BiH Association of Women” founded in Croatia, which worked with Bosnian refugee women.
Another example from Croatia is the “Centar za žene žrtve rata / Centre for Women Victims of War” which was founded in Zagreb in 1992. The initiative came as a reaction to war violence against women and sought to support women and strengthen feminist and anti-militarist positions in society. The Centre organized concrete help for traumatized women, and was also very active in international women’s networks and was a meeting point for activists from other countries who came to Zagreb.
