Targeted EU policy needed to combat violence against women

A targeted EU policy plan is needed to combat violence against women, said the Women’s Rights Committee on Wednesday. Male violence against women is a structural and widespread problem, linked to unequal distribution of power between the sexes – it is not a question of age, education, income or social position, it stressed, adding that this violence also violates human rights to life, safety, dignity, physical and mental integrity and sexual and reproductive choice and health.
