International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

For the 25th of November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the Council of Europe is putting a spotlight on the digital dimension of violence against women and girls.

Violence against women occurring offline is replicated and intensified through digital means. On the occasion of International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and during the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence, new tools and studies will be published by the Council of Europe to raise awareness of online violence against women and how the Istanbul Convention addresses them.
