Fight against gender-based violence - PM Draghi’s statement
22 November 2021
President of the Council of Ministers Mario Draghi expresses his full support for the measures to combat gender-based violence that have been presented today, ahead of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November. Protecting women is a top priority for the Government, which intends to address all aspects of the abhorrent problem of gender-based violence, from prevention to victim support. The Government is allocating new resources to help women who suffer domestic abuse, supporting them on their way out of violence and assisting their financial independence. The measures strengthen the support system for women and children who are victims of abuse, defending their rights and our society.
