On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (25 November), the EU Delegation and several of our Member States’ representations in Strasbourg are coming together in a joint call upon all states to strengthen efforts in the fight to end violence against women. Thus to mark the day, the ambassadors of the EU, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal and Slovenia are featuring photos with a dedicated campaign banner supporting this call. As ambassador Rasmus Lumi (Estonia) states: “Gender-based violence is not inevitable. It can and must be prevented, and it must be stopped now.” Ambassador Spyros Attas (Cyprus) underscores: “We must put an end to this!”


Dans la perspective de la Journée internationale pour l'élimination de la violence à l'égard des femmes, qui a lieu le 25 novembre, la Commission européenne et le haut représentant/vice-président, M. Josep Borrell, ont fait la déclaration suivante:

25/11/2021 - Several outlets - Op-Ed by Josep Borrell and Jutta Urpilainen and Ministers from 24 EU Member States - Rarely in the world have women’s and girls’ rights been challenged as they have been in Afghanistan. The latest developments give cause for great concern. The EU has made it clear that future EU development assistance to Afghanistan will depend on the respect for the international legal framework and for norms on human rights, including women’s and girls’ rights. The EU is determined and committed to continue to support the women and girls of Afghanistan and worldwide, sticking to our values and beliefs.
