While it is a recognised universal fact that eliminating gender inequality and achieving women’s empowerment are paramount to achieving the Millennium Development Goals, progress with implementation of the MDGs is the slowest in those areas that depend most heavily on improving the status of women and girls. Therefore, on the occasion of the Belgian EU Presidency, the Association of European Parliamentarians with Africa (AWEPA) saw the opportunity to further its aim to help speed up implementation of these vital goals.

This booklet is a guide which gathers knowledge and experiences shared by high-level specialists with a special focus on women’s rights in conflict areas and the abandonment of Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C), demonstrating that effective actions can be taken to end violence against women.
