Brod group for women's human rights was founded in 1998, with the aim to promote and protect the rights of women and children.

Its project "Counselling and shelter for women and children victims of domestic violence" aims to provide free legal help and support to women victims of discrimination, gender inequality and victims of domestic violence from Croatia. Since the address of the shelter remains confidential and women cannot go directly to the shelter, the first contact must be established in the counselling office of the Brod association. The staff working in legal counselling, on the telephone line, and on-line counselling are required to keep detailed statistics about beneficiaries and their requests for assistance.
