In the context of the “My dignity” project, the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) of Jordan has published a Guide to Protection from Domestic Violence. The aim of this manual, to which Mona Makhamreh, a lawyer and a well-known human rights activist, made a substantial contribution, is to provide a methodology to counter domestic violence, applying to single specific cases too the legal measures that protect the physically weakest categories, such as minors, women and the disabled. The manual, designed specifically for formation teachers, contains juridical data and elements. The YWCA is an NGO founded in Jordan in 1950 and is the local branch of the worldwide YWCA, based in Geneva, which aims to help women and to protect their rights from every form of discrimination of a racial, social or religious nature.
