    Wednesday 12th February at 12h00

    European Parliament Ground floor (Main Hall - niveau 0 – ASP)

    In the framework of the ONE BILLION RISING (OBR) Global Campaign 2014, initiated by V-Day, the European Women’s Lobby (EWL) is organizing a unique event in the European Parliament, co-hosted by MEP Isabelle Durant, to raise awareness on violence against women and to ask for 2016 to be the European Year to End Violence against women.

     To this end, a big board full of colorful hands (representing all the women around the globe rising for justice) will be shown at the European Parliament during the morning of the 12th of February at the Ground floor (Main Hall - niveau 0 – ASP). EU Commissioners and MEPs are invited to show their support and their commitment by signing the hands on the board from 9.30h onwards. Individual pictures will be taken and uploaded in our website and newsletter.
