On International #HumanRightsDay, we express our support to victims of violence and stand up against all human rights violations. The #16Days of Activism on Ending Violence Against Women campaign stands for the right of women to live a safe and secure life and for #BringingSecurityHome.

“Often a woman is not able to overcome such difficult situations of violence herself. Helping hands are required. The small work I have now is the light in the darkness that makes me live.”
Find out about how the OSCE Office in Yerevan is supporting Women’s Resource Centres in #Armenia to assist survivors of violence to rebuild their lives through economic empowerment: http://bit.ly/1lZWep3

“For many years now in #Albania, around 75 per cent of domestic violence victims are #women and #girls,” says Silvana Alimadhi Sulaj, a senior representative of Albania’s Police. “But the figure only refers to the ones who dared to break the chain and report violence. How many are still living in that hell? They need to know that there is someone who understands them and supports their struggle to say no.”

“The conflict in and #Ukraine has increased the risk of gender-based violence and human trafficking,” says Olga Scripovscaia, a monitor with the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine (SMM).

“The SMM’s mandate, which among other things includes monitoring and supporting the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, supports the #16Days of Activism on Ending Violence Against Women campaign and will continue to call on the government and institutions to recognize violence against women as a crime, implement legislation, and to establish support structures where women and girls can find help.”

Strong laws that punish perpetrators of domestic violence send an important signal that gender-based violence is a grave violation of human rights. The OSCE’s 57 participating States have passed a lot of legislation in this area, but more needs to be done.
