Supporting women affected by gender-based violence

25 November marks the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

It is a sad reminder that violence against women remains a striking concern - especially for those living in conflict, crisis and emergencies.

Often stigmatised for their misfortunes, women in conflict zones risk physical and emotional violence, sexual violence, sexual exploitation and abuse.

The EU, together with humanitarian partners, fights to end all forms of gender-based violence.
