25/11/2020 - Tribune de Josep Borrell et Jutta Urpilainen - Début 2020, Awa venait juste d'avoir 15 ans quand elle a entendu parler du mariage qu'on organisait pour elle. Difficile d'y échapper, semblait-il, et pourtant, Awa a trouvé le courage de braver la décision de son père. Elle s'est adressée à un comité de prévention des mariages précoces qui existait dans son petit village du Mali. Ce groupe de personnes respectées a présenté au père d'Awa tous ses arguments contre le mariage précoce et est parvenu à le convaincre. C'est pour aider les jeunes filles comme Awa que l'Union européenne soutient ce comité et de nombreux autres projets menés dans ce domaine dans le monde entier.

25/11/2020 - Op-Ed by Josep Borrell and Jutta Urpilainen - In early 2020, Awa had just turned 15 years old when she heard that her marriage was being arranged. Escaping it seemed difficult, but Awa found the courage to defy her father’s decision. Her small village in Mali had a committee for the prevention of early marriage, and she took her case to them. This body of respected people presented Awa’s father with all the arguments against early marriage, and managed to convince him. It is to help the cause of young girls like Awa that the European Union supports this committee and many other projects in this area around the world.

Gender equality and women empowerment are high on the agenda today. A newly adopted EU Gender Action Plan pushing for progress towards gender equality opened the day, with a series of gender related activities. To mark International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the day will end in orange as we illuminate the EU buildings in solidarity with victims of violence, particularly during this year when this Shadow Pandemic is growing amidst the COVID-19 crisis. Then we kick off #16DaysOfActivism telling the stories of inspiring women and girls across the globe, who thrived in difficult environments.
