Raising awareness of violence against women RSS
The European Commission acknowledges that more awareness-raising activities on the topic of violence against women are needed. Such activities spread the clear and unequivocal message of zero tolerance for all forms of violence against women and girls; inform female victims of violence about their right to a life free of violence; and ensure that those active in the field are well-informed.
What is the EU doing?
The EU supports diverse information and communication activities on violence against women including:
- Providing funding for national ministries, NGOs and other organisations actively working to bring an end to violence against women;
- Producing guidelines to monitor and evaluate awareness-raising activities . These guidelines help organisations to keep track of their progress and to learn from each other.
