Act against rape! Use the Istanbul Convention!

EWL Video "Act against rape!" and EWL Press Release to mark the International Day for the Elimination of VAW.

[Brussels, 25 November 2013] To mark International Day for the Elimination of Violence against women, the European Women’s Lobby launched on the 25th November a video-clip to speak out and draw attention to the fact that rape needs to be seriously addressed by the authorities in terms of access to justice, prevention and support to victims. As the video illustrates, the Istanbul Convention is a tool for change!

The EWL also issued a press release (that can be downloaded here) to draw attention on the fact that rape continues to be one of the most devastating forms of gender-based violence, yet it is too often a taboo subject and thus remains shrouded in silence.
