White Ribbon Day: International Day For The Elimination Of Violence Against Women


On November 25 we celebrate the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. This date was chosen after the deaths of three Dominican sisters who were fighting to have a country free of dictatorship back in 1960

According to the UN, 35% of women and girls globally experience some form of physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime with up to seven in ten women facing this abuse in some countries. It is estimated that up to 30 million girls under the age of 15 remain at risk from FGM/C, and more than 130 million girls and women have undergone the procedure worldwide.

Worldwide, more than 700 million women alive today were married as children, 250 million of whom were married before the age of 15. Girls who marry before the age of 18 are less likely to complete their education and more likely to experience domestic violence and complications in childbirth. 

The aim of the day is to raise public awareness that women around the world are subject to domestic violence. I would, however, like to make the point domestic violence does not exclusively relate to women, though statistics do show that they do comprise the majority of victims.

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.

In 2015 the European Commission will also formulate a new agenda for development for the coming years. Gender equality and women’s empowerment, the elimination of all forms of violence against all women and girls, the elimination of all harmful practices are a precondition for poverty eradication and sustainable development. The EU supports gender equality as both a stand-alone goal and its mainstreaming in the post-2015 framework for poverty reduction and sustainable development.
