Join our call for the EU to take action against gender-based violence!

1,089 signatures

The Istanbul Convention is a human rights treaty against violence against women and domestic violence adopted by the Council of Europe on 7 April 2011 which was later signed by 46 countries and ratified by 34 countries, leading to the single most consistent package of legislative protection which serve to protect victims of domestic abuse. 

One in three women in the EU have experienced physical and/or sexual violence. This is not right. Gender-based violence is a clear violation of human rights.

We call on Europe’s leaders to affirm that violence against women and girls has no place in Europe. Women’s rights are human rights!
