IATE Term of the Week – Violence against Women


International Women's Day

March 8th is International Women’s Day, so to highlight an extremely serious issue affecting women and girls in the EU and all over the world, we have chosen ‘violence against women‘ as our Term of the Week.

Violence against Women

The European Parliament has chosen ‘Preventing violence against women: a challenge for all’ as the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day and released a short video on the topic. According to a report by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights, violence against women is an extensive human rights abuse across Europe and all over the world, and yet remains one of the least-reported crimes. You can read more about their findings in this article.

We invite you to suggest the equivalent terms in the missing EU languages, or alternatives to the existing term in your language if you consider the proposed term inaccurate. Provide your answer with a reliable reference and an accurate definition and/or context if possible.

A terminologist for the language in question will revise your answer and decide whether to validate them. Given the implications of the process, a delay is to be expected.
