Wibke Müller

Wibke Müller was born in Berlin, Germany, in 1982. She is a survivor of sexualized violence in her family. Wibke studied biology and political science in Berlin and is currently finalizing her PhD thesis at the University of Freiburg. She works as a research associate at the University of Greifswald. Since 2009, Wibke has worked in a voluntary capacity for Wildwasser e.V., a feminist NGO fighting sexualized violence against girls and women. In 2019 Wibke became a board member where she served from 2011 to 2019.

She was part of a team that organized a nationwide survivors’ congress in 2010 following the so-called “Abuse Scandal'' in Germany. Today, Wibke is a member of the Council of Survivors in Germany since 2016, giving policy advise to the Independent Commissioner for Child Sexual Abuse Issues on federal state level in Germany. Also, she is involved in policy making. She is a member of a national working group to fight exploitation of children, and to increase international cooperation for implementing children’s rights. Since human rights based international cooperation is very important for her, she co-organized together with her team two international congresses by survivors for survivors and allies in Berlin in 2016 and in 2018.
