This report presents the recommendations and advocacy tools of the project #WomensVoices: Preventing and Combating Violence against Refugee Women and Girls on the Move, which was jointly developed by European Women’s Lobby (EWL), Women Refugee Commission (WRC), and the European Network of Migrant Women (ENoMW).The recommendations in this report urge the European and state policy-makers to implement:
- Comprehensive policies to end all forms of violence against women and girls in the EU and its member states, and specific measures to ensure that women and girls refugees and asylum seekers are protected and get access to justice.
- A humanitarian response which succeeds in protecting women and girls from male violence and exploitation.
- Gender-sensitive asylum policies and procedures to help women and girls to escape or denounce male violence and access to their full human rights.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
