A new pan-European initiative in support of the Campaign:
Day of Parliamentary Hearings
The Parliamentary Assembly’s Committee on Equal Opportunities for Women and Men is proposing a new high-profile initiative by parliaments in conjunction with International Women’s Day.
National parliaments are invited to organise a Day of Parliamentary Hearings, in conjunction with International Women’s Day on 8 March 2007, to say “Stop domestic violence against women”.
These hearings are the opportunity to bring together all the players involved in combating violence against women and to take stock of national legislation. Parliaments are invited to associate government representatives and local and regional elected officials, professionals working with the victims (police, courts, social and educational services, medical services, etc.) and NGOs involved in defending human rights and protecting women who are victims of domestic violence.
