Combating discrimination and violence against women
Gender equality and stopping violence against women are in the focus of the EU-funded “Enhancing Equality between Men and Women” programme (EGEP) that is assessing the situation in 9 Mediterranean partner countries. Stopping violence against women is a priority, team leader Judith Neisse said, adding another key issue is women’s representation.
A general report and 9 country reports are being produced by the project, with the aim of establishing priorities and carrying out needs-based regional activities.
This is part of a series of features on projects funded by the EU’s Regional Programme, prepared by journalists and photographers on the ground or by the ENPI Info Centre. (ENPI Info Centre)
