Abstract [en]

When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out there was an expressed concern for women and children exposed to interpersonal violence. U.N. testified that violence against women, was highly intensified during this time, and described the situation as a shadow pandemic. A concern expressed was that abused women’s possibilities to reach out for help and support now were being limited. We have interviewed volunteers and staff at women’s shelter, to create a picture of how they navigated in the silence that arose in the wake of the pandemic. We are particularly interested in how they understood and acted in relation to this situation of uncertainty. We will present how uncertainty is transformed to risk and how risk is managed when giving support to women exposed to violence during the pandemic.
