To respond to the question of why we need the Council of Europe Istanbul Convention is pretty simple; because it protects you and me! The ratification and implementation of the Istanbul Convention ensure that women and girls are safe and can live a life free from violence. Thank you to our Step Up Campaigners and WAVE Youth Ambassadors, as well as all the decision-makers, activists, feminists and many more who have come together today, the 10th anniversary of the Istanbul Convention, to celebrate the most important legal framework of preventing and combating violence against women and girls.
The Istanbul Convention protects you and me!
