Are women safe in Europe?
Gender-based violence figures are appalling across the continent, but even one female victim is already too much for the EU. Together with MEPs Frances Fitzgerald and Nathalie Colin-Oesterlé, we visited shelters for women and children housing victims of gender-based violence in Dublin (Ireland) and Strasbourg (France).
We wanted to hear about their realities and how the first-ever EU law on Combating Violence Against Women could help them.
Watch our talk with 'Saoirse,' 'Ruhama,' and 'Solidarité Femmes 67.'
Let’s ensure that women no longer feel unsafe in Europe, but those who perpetrate violence against them.
