Presentation

In Episode 3 “Getting tough on gender violence”, we provide a vivid example of the power of civil society to bring about changes and push lawmakers to act. Our guest is Croatian actress and screenwriter Jelena Veljača who, enraged by a gruesome act of domestic violence that shook the country, started a social network campaign last year that snowballed into a national cry for justice for women and girls. Croatian EESC member Marina Škrabalo tells us about the importance of the Istanbul Convention and the EESC's take on the matter, while VoxEurop editor-in-chief Catherine André talks about the absence of unanimous support for the Convention despite the figures on gender violence remaining grim all over the EU.
