24-Hour Hotline 262.542.3828

The Women’s Center 24-Hour Hotline recently has been the target of a harassment campaign spreading on social media (sometimes known as the “man in charge” challenge), which has resulted in hundreds of prank calls with harassing and abusive statements that have severely disrupted our 24-Hour Hotline and our ability to provide urgent services to survivors. PLEASE BE ADVISED that these calls constitute “unlawful use of the telephone” under state law (Wis. Stat. § 947.012.) The Women’s Center is reporting calls to law enforcement and may pursue all available remedies under local, state, federal, and international law.
