EWL issues Position Paper on violence against women

[Brussels, 21 December 2010] The European Women’s Lobby has adopted and published a Position Paper entitled ’Towards a Europe free from all forms of male violence against women’ which comprises the position and recommendations of its membership on the serious issue of male violence against women in the EU. The document gives a strong analysis of male violence against women as the main structural expression of gender inequality and denounces its persistence in the 21st Century as an archaic tolerance for the violation of women’s human rights. The European Women’s Lobby delivers several concrete policy recommendations towards the eradication of all forms of male violence against women, an essential step towards the realisation of a modern European Union.
