This project creates a collage of women of all ages who are on the run.

As a mouthpiece to the public, “Women on the Run” offers them the opportunity to show their faces and to present their current experience from the perspective of themselves in the form of thoughts, dreams, worries and hardships. They are free to choose what they report about and in what form.


The project aims to show how women on the run fight in “their” way: not with weapons on the front line, but by raising their own voices. Their fight is a personal struggle, because fleeing means entering new danger zones. Those who flee must show courage, overcome fears and face uncertainties. Women assume great responsibility for themselves, their children and the lives of others. In doing so, they risk exposure to sexual violence, disastrous living conditions and human trafficking.
