Human and Minority Rights and Gender Equality Committee Chairman on 25 November, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
This year we celebrate the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women as the whole world fights against a pandemic that has led to numerous changes in our lives, in the life of every family, and often caused changes in family and partnership relations.
The consequences of violence against women are countless, primarily for the victim, but for all the family members as well, especially the children. Regardless of all the problems faced by countries around the, the combating violence against women must remain at the top of our priorities, even more so than it has been the case so far. Violence against women is a crime and a problem that we unfortunately still face and we must not ignore it under any circumstances. Nowadays, when faced with numerous challenges, a strong family, solidarity and care for the helpless and vulnerable are necessary to reduce the negative effects of the pandemic.
The Committee for Human and Minority Rights and Gender Equality will continue to work in cooperation with the competent ministries, independent state bodies and civil society organizations on improving the legislative framework in the fight against violence against women, as well as monitor the implementation of the adopted laws.
