NOVEMBER 25: INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

Italy reaffirms its firm commitment to the fight against all forms of discrimination and violence against women, which continues to be a serious and unacceptable obstacle to the enjoyment of women's rights and their full personal fulfillment. This is a priority commitment of our country's foreign policy action, which the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is pursuing both on the diplomatic-negotiation level and on that of development cooperation. Proof of this are the numerous international campaigns, such as those for the eradication of female genital mutilation (FGM) and early and forced marriages, which have always seen Italy at the forefront.
On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the Italian Foreign Ministry and its network of Embassies and Consulates adhere to the #OrangetheWorld awareness campaign, promoted by UN Women, which in 2019 is focused on the fight against rape, a particularly hateful and widespread form of gender violence, of which one woman out of three in the world has been a victim in her life. The campaign will also be associated with the hashtag #GenerationEquality which, recalling the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Beijing Declaration on women, calls on everyone to make new important steps towards gender equality: a goal that no country in the world, to date, can claim to have reached.
