Kicking off the ALDE Party ’16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence’ campaign on 25 November was a thematic Liberal Breakfast focusing on violence against women in politics, organised together with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation.
The panel of this insightful debate included former UN Women Chief of the Asia-Pacific and Arab States Dr Socorro Reyes, Renew Europe MEP Samira Rafaela (D66, The Netherlands), and European Women's Academy (EWA) Alumnae Advisory Board Member Madelaine Jakobsson. The event was moderated by EWA Project Manager Adam Vink.
The points covered by the participants included, among others, the needs for positive role models, for data about diversity and for legal frameworks and safe spaces, which support the efforts to protect women from violence.

The event was also recorded in a graphic format by artist Esther Blodau (see below).
