Stigamot, a conselling and information centre on sexual violence

Stigamot is a feministic organisation, dealing with rape, incest, prostitution and trafficking.


The main focus is on counselling services for survivors of violence and to run Kristínarhús a shelter for women exiting trafficking and prostitution. Each year around 660 people use the services; half of the group are new to us, the other half from earlier years. Each year counselling hours are around 2000, and the number of self-help groups is 10-15.

Political society work is an important part of Stigamót’s work, training, consciousness-raising, lobbyism, activism, media work and international work.
