LOS MANTÍSPIDOS DE LA PENÍNSULA IBÉRICA Y BALEARES (INSECTA, NEUROPTERIDA, NEUROPTERA, MANTISPIDAE)
It is a serious crime and it is widespread. Behind every victim, there is a heart-breaking story of a broken life. Too many women and girls today live in fear and despair, bleeding in their minds and bodies, hurt and crushed by guilt and shame. I have visited shelters from Sweden to Greece, witnessing amazing examples of civil society taking women and girls by the hand to help them recover their dignity and rebuild their life. However, women at home continue to be beaten, and often children witness terrible scenes.
In public there are cases where even going to a swimming pool or to a music festival poses a danger of harassment or rape, and persecution in the social media has become a global phenomenon affecting an entire generation. Let us be clear: this is often about men attacking women out of jealousy or frustration, under the influence of alcohol or for revenge.
Often they just cannot accept a woman being strong, independent and modern, making her own choices and then daring to live them.
Let us talk about Lucia, an Italian woman disfigured by acid. She had the courage to denounce her former partner. It is his fault to have hit you. On the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, with our joint resolution, let us give a voice to women who are victims of violence. Let us help them to break the vicious circle of silence and loneliness. We also ask them to speed up the accession of the EU to the Convention, to strengthen our tools, to combat and prevent violence against women and to protect victims.
Madam President, the EPP Group will continue to be committed to a policy of zero tolerance on violence against women. Christine Revault D'Allonnes Bonnefoy, auteure. Angelika Mlinar, author. We are almost unanimously asking the European Union and individual Member States to ratify it, and for the first time we are sending a clear and strong political message. We are — and we will always be — on the side of victims of gender—based violence and violence against women.
For those who still wonder why we are once again debating this, my answer is very simple. We are not gender ideologists, we are human rights defenders. It is true that the accession process was initiated by the Commission, all EU Member States have already signed it and 14 Member States have ratified it.
S T R A V A G A N Z A: MUTILAÇÃO GENITAL FEMININA
But my experience has never proved me wrong: never take rights for granted. We should be vocal until we have a generation of Europeans completely aware that gender—based violence is not tolerable and there is never a justification for it. On behalf of my Group, I would like to express our full support for the Commission and for making sure that the Council reacts.
Until the Istanbul Convention is ratified by the European Union, we will not have an instrument in Europe to set legally binding standards to specifically prevent violence against women and girls, protect victims and punish perpetrators. I look forward to cooperating with the Commission and the coming Council Presidencies to make the Istanbul Convention an EU instrument against violence against women. My last words go to the Orange Campaign on Friday.
Terry Reintke, author. The horrible law proposed by the Turkish Government to clear a rapist of all his charges if he marries the victim has been withdrawn by the AKP. The Turkish Government has not withdrawn this proposal because they think it is wrong, but because of thousands of women fighting against this proposal in the streets of Istanbul. It is so sad, but also so obvious, that we will have to fight for our freedom over and over again. Now one could argue, well, this is far away, and this is not happening in the European Union.
But it is. It is happening in the European Union as well. Every third woman in the European Union experiences violence in her life. This might seem like an abstract number, but out of women in this Chamber, approximately 90 would have been those who experienced violence in their lives. This is us. It is women who are sitting with us in this Chamber, voting, representing their constituents — maybe women that you have a coffee with from time to time. They have the same fate as millions of women in the European Union, and it is not enough to talk about it once a year. We will have to fight against this, but this fight will be a thousand times stronger if we have a good legal foundation, and the Istanbul Convention is one of the tools to do that.
Annars hade det ju stoppats. Helga Stevens, Auteur. In het bijzonder vrouwen met een beperking lopen volgens schattingen anderhalf tot 10 keer meer risico om misbruikt te worden dan vrouwen zonder beperking. Geweld tegen vrouwen, maar zeker ook tegen mannen en kinderen, vormt een schending van de grondrechten en is een extreme vorm van discriminatie die zowel oorzaak als gevolg van genderongelijkheid is. De Commissie stelde op 4 maart voor dat de EU toetreedt tot het Verdrag van Istanbul: het eerste juridisch bindende instrument op internationaal niveau voor het voorkomen en bestrijden van geweld tegen vrouwen.
Ik steun uiteraard de toetreding van de EU tot het Verdrag van Istanbul. Natuurlijk is het in principe aan de lidstaten om hun job te doen en vrouwen tegen geweld te beschermen, maar de EU kan hier aanvullend in optreden, bijvoorbeeld in verband met de rechten van slachtoffers en beschermingsbevelen en op het gebied van gerechtelijke samenwerking in strafzaken. There is no doubt that combating all forms of violence against women and girls is a core element of the observance of fundamental rights. It is therefore of the utmost importance to send out a strong message on our commitment to uphold equality and respect for human rights.
We believe that our joint effort and a strong message of unity are needed to ensure the protection of all women and girls in Europe. I would like to recall that the Council has repeatedly expressed its commitment to the prevention and elimination of all forms of violence against women. These are crimes that have no place in the EU Member States, and the Council has encouraged them to sign and ratify the Istanbul Convention.
As you know, all the Member States have already signed and, so far, 14 of them have ratified the convention. This will be an excellent opportunity for exchanges with the co-rapporteurs and representatives of the Council of Europe, the United Nations and the Commission. This matter has been one of our priorities since the very start of our Presidency last July.
In a first phase, Member States have agreed to concentrate on the Council decision authorising the signature, on behalf of the EU, of the Istanbul Convention. There is very broad support among Member States for this accession. These involve complex legal matters on which Member States are seeking more clarity.
Nevertheless, we are confident that we will be able to make substantial progress with the proposal for a Council decision on the signing of the Convention. Another meeting is scheduled next week to continue the negotiations. For our part, and I think this is most important, we still aim to submit the proposal for the Council decision on the signing of the Convention to the Council in December. Lastly Madam President, I need to apologise for not being able to be here with you until the end of your debate.
This Conference took place in March shortly after the Commission adopted proposals for the signing and conclusion of the accession to the Convention. Since then, we have put all our efforts behind constructive discussions with the Council to reach political agreement. The Council Presidencies involved have been very successful and useful in facilitating this.
We have held in-depth discussions on all legal aspects of the accession, in particular the extent of accession. We discussed the division of roles between the Member States and the Union in the implementation of the Convention. As you know, the Commission is of the view that EU accession should generate the added value we are seeking to make a difference on the ground. We want to strengthen and complement the existing framework in a wide range of policy areas.
The competences and roles of the EU and Member States are closely intertwined. That is why the EU aims to accede to this Convention in parallel to national ratifications. I seriously hope that we can reach an agreement on the terms of the signing decision within the coming month. We heard from the Presidency that it should be in December. This would be the best news. Signing this decision would demonstrate the common political will of the Union to be bound by the Convention.
We have emphasised since the beginning that only the joint participation of both the EU and the Member States makes sense, legally and politically. I am constantly encouraging the Member States to ratify alongside the EU, and the Member States can rely on available European Programmes and funds to help in this process. I would like to thank the Parliament again for its support and I look forward to its interim report, which will be adopted next year.
We will continue to monitor and support the implementation of the existing legal instruments to combat violence against women. I have promised to you several times that we want to devote the year to strengthening combating violence against women, so I am particularly glad to announce to you that, on 25 November, as part of our year of focused actions to combat violence against women, I will launch the promised EU—wide campaign. My objective is to provide a framework for a coordinated approach and join forces together with you, Member States, the European Institute for Gender Equality, UN Women and other International Organisations, civil society organisations, academia, businesses, trade unions, media and, within the Member States, also with law enforcement authorities, because I said we want to make a change on the ground.
This means that the women will be protected not only by preventive measures, but also — let us face it — by a necessary reaction from the side of criminal justice. During the year of focused actions to combat violence against women, many activities are planned. It is a cross-cutting effort and work within the Commission, involving many of my colleague Commissioners and their services.
Apart from communication, best practices and experience sharing, it also includes funding. This is a very wide range of different plans and actions and I can only say that I have received a very good reaction from my colleague Commissioners. Why do we rely on Member States for this? Simply because violence against women has many different forms in Member States.
That is why we speak about targeting actions and the Commission provides the funding for this, as well as the unifying logo, slogans, design and many other things. That is just for you to understand how the campaign will work. Activities will cover all forms of violence against women or focus on specific forms or issues, as relevant.
This money will go to the organisations — the NGOs — which work on the ground and which can also contribute in a very significant way to the success of this campaign. I would like to thank the Parliament once again for its support of our endeavours in fighting violence against women. I remain committed to continue informing you in a timely manner on all developments in this area, and of course to invite you to join and participate in our coming campaign. C'est une honte absolue. Cela suffit.
Esto nos obliga a actuar de manera contundente. Hablamos de vidas truncadas, de familias rotas, de futuros condenados al dolor. No es el momento de complacencias ni de excusas. This equates to 62 million women. That is my Member State, the population of my country, represented in that number. While cases are reported and action is taken, there are still far too many instances where women are trapped, suffering in silence and with no conceivable way out. Violence against women does not just apply to physical abuse. It also covers the emotional manipulation and psychological trauma thousands of women are subjected to just because they are women.
Violence against women is a form of gender-based violence. It is gross, inexcusable and a violation of human rights. Given the varying forms violence against women can take, as well as the numerous avenues through which such violence can be executed, no single intervention will result in its elimination. The Istanbul Convention opens the path to make change possible.
I therefore urge Member States, including my own, the UK, to ratify and implement the Convention if they have not already done so. Y es que podemos hacerlo. La Presidencia eslovaca habla maravillas del Convenio de Estambul, pero Eslovaquia no ha ratificado el Convenio. Basta de excusas. Sono passati ormai oltre cinque anni dall'approvazione della convenzione di Istanbul e credo che dobbiamo porci una domanda: come mai non tutti gli Stati dell'UE l'hanno ancora ratificata e altri nemmeno firmata?
Quindi, soffermiamoci a capire le reali motivazioni di queste mancate ratifiche. Molti Stati, infatti, si sono concentrati sulle misure di repressione e ancora troppo poco su quelle di prevenzione.

Ecco, mi pare assurdo che uno strumento come la convenzione, che dovrebbe unirci in questa battaglia, finisca per dividerci e, a distanza di cinque anni, non siamo ancora arrivati a un risultato, a una soluzione. Insomma, superiamo queste questioni formalistiche e concentriamoci maggiormente sul monitoraggio di quanto sta realmente accadendo nei singoli Stati. It took years before the Rotherham child abuse case was brought to light in the UK, out of fear of being labelled racist.
In the UK we still have a parallel society of Sharia courts operating right under our noses. In fact all over Europe we see the same pattern. No amount of EU law or funds will make a difference until this is addressed. The truth is that by letting millions of young migrant men with Muslim backgrounds into our countries, we have submitted our women to these attacks. It is a form of terrorism. No more cover-ups, no more mitigating circumstances, no more political correctness. The speaker agreed to take a blue-card question under Rule 8. Julie Girling ECR , blue-card question.
Janice Atkinson ENF , blue-card answer. I have been fighting against this type of violence all my life as a woman who has actually been affected by violence in the home and on the street. My statistics are government statistics, but it is a fact, whether you like it or not, and that is why our government is having an investigation at the moment into Sharia law.

Until we actually address the problems and we address that it is the Muslim migrants coming into our countries because of open borders And that is why you will be going, Madam. You will be leaving this Chamber because we voted for Brexit and because you all wonder why the populace are on the rise in America and in Holland and in other countries: because of people like you and them across there.
