Mrs. Silvia Gašparovičová together with Mrs. Božidara Turzonovová and Mrs. Anina Botošová baptised on 23th April 2008 in the bookstore World of Book in Bratislava the book from a well known czech singer Eva Hurychová – I said no to tyrant. The artist has borne assault of her own husband for several years. Later, she managed to get from tyranny and so she decided to write a book about their sufferings to help other women find the courage to defy aggressors. In the book, the readers learn about domestic violence, how it actually arises, what are its symptoms, up to a final solution of the situation.
One of the reasons why Mrs. Silvia Gašparovičová decided in baptism this book was the fact that also her foundation Education and Health for Everybody helps victims of domestic violence – through the project "Life without Violence". She wished this book that "this type of books will be less necessary and that women will find the inner strength and courage to defy through this book."
