Activities implemented to fight gender-based violence (in english)
Main goals of the UNION are: combating various forms of violence against women (physical, sexual, psychological, economical, mental and other kinds of violence, including trafficking in women and prostitution) through prevention work and helping of victims as well as developing ideas of equality in the society in general. In our understanding, violence against women includes all kinds of gendered violence that cause or can cause physical, sexual or psychological damage to and suffering of women (including threatening with such measures, using force or depriving of freedom in the sphere of public as well as private life).
Activities implemented to fight gender-based violence (in your national language)
Eesti naised on ühinenud, et üheskoos otsida lahendusi naiste probleemidele. Naistevastane vägivald, palgatasemete erinevused võrreldes meestega, meeste vähene osalus ja tugi laste kasvatamisel, naiste vähene esindatus tähtsate otsuste langetamisel – naiste mured ja vajadused on väga paljuski sarnased kõikjal Euroopas. Muutes elu inimväärsemaks Eestis, mõjutab see ühtlasi kogu Euroopat ja vastupidi.
