The Spotlight Initiative

Aid and Development
Date: Friday, 06 October 2017 12:30 - 14:00

Venue: Europaid - Ground floor  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

The European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) launched a new global Initiative to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls on 20 September 2017 at the margin of the 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly. The initiative is in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with a particular focus on women's rights and empowerment.

Violence against women and girls exists in all countries. It has many forms which range from domestic or intimate partner violence to sexual harassment and assault, child marriage, female genital mutilation, trafficking, sexual violence in conflict and gender-related killing. Worldwide, it is estimated that 35 per cent of women have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence.

Backed by an initial dedicated financial envelope from the EU of EUR 500 million, the robust partnership will strive to ensure all women and girls can live a life free of violence, irrespective of their age, location, sexual identity, disability, ethnicity, migration status, or socio-economic situation.
