A new book with authors from Civil Society in Sweden, Finland, Latvia and Lithuania demands legislation to Combat Violence against Women.

”The violence against women is one of our time's true catastrophes. Even though thousands of women are victims, the problem does not get the attention it deserves from the society, including from legislative authorities and politicians. That’s why it is so important that the members of civil society raise their voices to shed light on the problem and demand action. This anthology is doing just that. Cooperation between several organisations around the Baltic Sea points out how to make the EU strategy for equality more effective, not least when it comes to combatting violence against women. I hope that many decision makers as well as a concerned public read this book.”  Ann Linde, fm Minister for Foreign Affairs
