About Infra

The information centre Infra emerged from the feminist movement in 1974. The female counsellors at Infra Bern have provided information and advice for women ever since.

 

Basic idea

Infra Bern aims to help women to help themselves. Thereby, we contribute to gender mainstreaming.

 

Our information centre offers initial counselling regarding legal and related personal matters. We aim to encourage women to advocate their own interests. We set value on imparting knowledge in an understandable manner and to develop potential solutions together with our clients.

 

We consider combating any form of discrimination against women an issue of particular importance and we represent female interests.

 

Collaboration

We collaborate with several lawyers/attorneys and organisations, active in areas of relevance for gender mainstreaming or counselling. Infra Bern is part of the cantonal professional body for gender mainstreaming.

 

Organisation

Infra Bern is an association of approximately 20 female lawyers/attorneys and law students who run the organisation democratically (grassroots democracy). Periodic internal training guarantees that we work according to the latest knowledge.

INFRA BERN

provides addresses of organisations for further services (like lawyers, other information centres etc.)
