Violence

Two years ago I was travelling through Greece and during that time I was physically assaulted by a Greek man. Since then I have tried to seek out a support group which focused upon women who have been assaulted during their international travels, sadly, my research has proven to be unsuccessful. If your organization could provide me with any information regarding emotional or legal support on an international level, I would be very appreciative.

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. I think that you should consult some of the women focused travel guides for more information about "what to do while travelling and being assaulted." They are likely to have a section to this effect and appropriate references listed. For instance, you should reference books by Thalia Zepatos--for example A Journey of One's Own: Uncommon Advice for the Independent Woman Traveler. There is also a website by someone named Holly Morris, which is targeted to women travelers. The U.S. Embassy and/or consulate is also a good place, but they can sometimes be weighed down by bureaucracy.
