CEDAW Committee General Recommendation No. 35 on Gender-Based Violence Against Women, Updating General Recommendation No. 19

Извор: WUNRN – 25.08.2017

The CEDAW Committee also makes recommendations on any issue affecting women to which it believes the States parties should devote more attention. For example, at the 1989 session, the Committee discussed the high incidence of violence against women, requesting information on this problem from all countries. In 1992, the Committee adopted general recommendation 19 on violence against women, asking States parties to include in their periodic reports to the Committee statistical data on the incidence of violence against women, information on the provision of services for victims, and legislative and other measures taken to protect women against violence in their everyday lives, including against harassment at the workplace, abuse in the family and sexual violence. Now, the CEDAW Committee has adopted General Recommendation No. 35 on Violence Against Women, Updating General Recommendation 19.
