Share and sign the European Women’s Lobby petition: 2016 as European Year to End Violence against Women!

[Brussels, 21 March 2014] Together with the European Women’s Lobby, sign and share our petition calling on the current and future Presidents of the European Commission to establish 2016 as European Year to End Violence against Women and girls.

We have 8 months until the new Commission’s President gets appointed to get a critical mass of signatures. We need you to make our voice heard!

We also have a great opportunity now as the European Parliament adopted two weeks ago a resolution with recommendations to the European Commission on combating violence against women, including a demand to establish a European Year to End violence against women.

By establishing a European Year to end violence against women and girls, the EU would play a leading role in raising awareness on violence against women, and at the same time propose concrete measures to act against the perpetuation of violence against women.

We cannot miss the opportunity to say that: We want 2016 to be the European Year to End Violence against Women! Women cannot wait any longer!
