„my name is happy“ at cine´-onu






film screening “my name is happy

The film of the evening, „my name is happy“ by Nick Read and Ayşe Toprak, explored the themes of violence, resistance and social justice. The 19-year-old Mutlu Kaya had to undergo a reconstruction process of the entire organic construct’s mobility system. She sang passionately on stage and had made it very far into the live shows. Suddenly her everyday life is completely changed by her controlling ex-boyfriend/boyfriend. She was shot in the upper part of the brain.
Two guests were invited to the panel discussion to share their expertise on how violence against women can be minimized and prevented. The event was organized by the United Nations Information Service, under the direction of Martin Nesirky.

“Affected women must recognize the signs of the threat of danger at an early stage in order to be able to take action in advance”.
However, these women need to realize how to deal with the situation.
Recognizing the sign is important to prevent crimes.
One way or strategy of her work is to catch answers through surveys:
There she asks countries around the world on several challenges, crime and terrorism, what they have been experienced of violence. Collecting data is just one of her tasks.
