16 Days: Day 15

Today, in support of the 16 days campaign, we want to draw readers’ attention to this year’s decision of the European Court of Human Rights in Opuz v. Turkey in which the court held for the first time that gender-based violence is a form of discrimination under the Convention.

Tomorrow, for Day 16, I will blog -as part of our Budget Blog Carnival – on the impact of the budget for efforts to prevent violence against women.
