Eliminating Violence Against Women in Leadership for the Empowerment of All Women and Girls

Violence against women in politics is not only an intolerable violation of women’s human rights and civil rights but a fundamental challenge to democracy.

The UN 65th Commission on the Status of Women with its priority theme “Women's full and effective participation and decision-making in public life, as well as the elimination of violence, for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls” is a moment to raise awareness of the threat of gender-based violence affecting women engaged in public life and specify policy solutions or remedies.

The Foundation for European Progressive Studies and the National Democratic Institute organised a solutions-oriented discussion to evaluate successful policy responses and promote their urgent adoption.
