On 18 May 2011, Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, revealed the Commission’s proposal of a ‘Victims’ Package’, which consists of a series of measures to ensure a minimum level of rights, support and protection for victims across the EU. Women’s organizations had great expectations regarding this legislative package, as in the past months the European Commission has repeatedly presented it as a concrete EU action to combat violence against women, but find themselves disappointed at the final result.
