What does Vrouwenrechtswinkel Amsterdam (VRWA) do?

frequently asked questions

VRWA is there for anyone who needs it. Our primary target group is women in a financially vulnerable position, but of course anyone who benefits from it can ask VRWA for help. The questions have been adjusted accordingly. However, on this website and in our communications, we refer to the term “women” because that is the legal category we often deal with, especially when it comes to unequal treatment. We conform to the legal form, but we are well aware that there are people who do not identify as men or women and hope that they will feel supported by VRWA too.

VRWA is there for everyone who needs help in obtaining answers to legal questions. However, VRWA cannot provide legal assistance but can refer you to lawyers/lawyers who can.

VRWA is a resource for women who want to pursue their rights. We provide answers to legal questions and free tailor-made advice. VRWA offers legal help on topics related to work, finance, education and care by means of a simple questionnaire. If we cannot do enough for the user, we are ready to think along about possible next steps or advice.

You will then get a VRWA employee on the phone. He or she will make sure you get an answer to your question or will connect you to a person who can help you further.

VRWA is a platform in development. We are adding to our questions on a daily basis. In order to get an answer to your question you can contact our advisors at 020-525 8113. We are available from Monday to Friday between 9AM – 5PM.
