Spanish term or phrase: casa de acogida de mujeres maltratadas
Son lugares que proporcionan un lugar a dónde ir a las mujeres que sufren malos tratos, aunque creo que es obvio. Me gustaría que alguien que viva en algún país de habla inglesa me ayudase, ¿cuál es el nombre habitual que se les da allí?
