International Women’s Day: preventing violence against women across the EU

MEPs and national MPs will debate how to make EU and national measures to prevent violence against women work better across the EU at a European Parliament Women’s Rights Committee conference, to be held today to mark this year’s International Women’s Day on 8 March. The conference takes place from 15.00 to 18.30 in room JAN 2Q2.

The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights will present the results of an EU-wide survey on gender-based violence against women, and EP President Martin Schulz will open the conference with a video message.

The European Parliament last week voted a resolution calling on the European Commission to table measures by the end of 2014 to prevent gender-based violence against women.
