The WAVE Step Up! Campaign received endorsement by Vera Jourova, European Commissioner for Justice, Consumer & Gender Equality. See her full letter of support here, in which she explains that the EU will continue to promote the ratification of the Istanbul Convention and dedicate 2017 to awareness-raising and combating violence against women. WAVE looks forward to continuing good collaboration in frame of the Step Up! Campaign to support the rights of women to live free from violence.
