Possible Future EU Strategy to Combat Violence against Women

[Brussels, 27 July 2010] The EWL’s Centre on Violence has completed and published its Contribution to the EC Consultation on a possible future EU Strategy to combat violence against women (VAW) initiated by EC Directorate General Justice, Freedom and Security. The Contribution covers the main points of the EWL’s position and demands in the context of male violence against women; it highlight the structural character of VAW, rooted in inequality between women and men, the need to focus on all forms of violence against women and makes recommendations, which we hope the EC will find useful in their future work. The structure of the text follows the questions asked by the EC in its consultation questionnaire. We have taken into consideration preliminary discussions/contacts with our member EDF and with other NGOs, such as ILGA, which were helpful in addressing specific concerns, such as that of vulnerable groups of women and girls victims of violence.
