About us

SheCanHeCan (formerly GenderHopes) was established in 2011 as a Monaco-based organisation.

A long-time advocate to end gender-based violence and discrimination, GenderHopes launched the first website www.monacosaysnotoviolence.org as well as a brochure that was distributed nationwide to inform and assist victims of domestic violence in Monaco.
