Melissa is a network of migrant women in Greece, promoting empowerment, communication and active citizenship to migrant women in Greece. It has a special significance given that it was established by women and is addressed to women, highlighting the gender perspective of the refugee crisis. Women are a particularly vulnerable part of the refugee population, because they are often exposed to sexual violence, abuse and trafficking. The «Melissa» Network is for them a safe haven and a space of freedom where they can express themselves.
