Member Report on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

SSSP member Dr. Morena Tartari reported on the November 25th International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women:
This year in Europe has been celebrated with symbolic and material actions of sensitization. While cities across Europe organized different events, the European Union has established a EU-wide harmonised number for helplines for victims of violence against women,116 016. Gender-based violence has seen a worrying rise in recent years. Josep Borrell, the European Commission and High Representative/Vice President, said: “The facts are shocking - in the EU and across the world, one in three women have experienced physical or sexual violence. One in five girls today are victims of child sexual abuse.”
For more information about EU actions against violence against women and domestic violence, see the links below:
