The recent flows of refugees to and throughout Europe have highlighted the lack of interest and understanding for the specific situation of women and girls on the move by decision-makers and the media. The vast majority of women and girls migrating throughout Europe are fleeing conflict and male violence, and are looking for a safe environment.

This Report presents the European Women’s Lobby’s recommendations to ensure protection of women and girls refuges and asylum seekers from all forms of male violence, at all stages of their journey towards peace.
