Joint Statement on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, 25 November 2014

Joint Statement on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, 25 November 2014

24 November 2014, Brussels - Combating all forms of violence against women and girls is a fundamental pillar of the respect for human or fundamental rights and remains a priority for the EU, both internally and externally. One year ago, the European Commission and EEAS jointly adopted the Communication on eliminating female genital mutilation, and we have continued our efforts in this area. The EU is funding projects promoting social change and preventing this practice, as well as providing support to victims and engaging with members of practising communities to advocate for attitudinal change.
