Gender equality is one of the key values of the European Parliament. Violence against women is a form of discrimination based on gender and one of the most sensitive issues of gender inequality. In this debate, EU parliamentarians, representatives of public institutions and non-governmental organizations active in this area were invited to express their views on violence against women.
