For some years now, I have supported Terre des Femmes, a non-profit organisation dedicated to women's rights. Through its international networking activities, PR work, campaigns, personal counselling and the support of individual projects, Terre des Femmes empowers girls and women to lead a self-determined life while holding equal and inalienable rights. Within the scope of my work, I endeavour to raise awareness of these issues and grievances and present Terre des Femmes events on a voluntary basis. I am passionate about demonstrating that women's freedom and equality is an issue not only in so-called third world countries but also on our very own doorsteps. This is why I also support projects that address the problems of "honour killings" and domestic violence.
