The struggle against violence against women in the region brings together the objectives and strategies of the feminist movement. The movement has accumulated a wealth of experience in uncovering the scope of violence and the impact on women’s lives and making visible one of the most flagrant aspects of women’s subordination.


The feminist movement’s world view is based on the recognition that it is not possible to deal with violence against women without challenging the political, economic and sociocultural organisation of society.
