Tailoring and enforcement of the Treaty on VAW is important both as a process and the final outcome. Through the process of drafting the Treaty, women’s human rights organisations network and work closely, becoming more visible and vocal in the national and global public sphere. Somehow it seems to me that the women’s movement has become either non-existent or significantly weakened, and through this process may again gain vitality and creative impulse. Outcome is important as in contrast to all national legislations and international documents, we do not witness decrease of violence against women. With the Treaty, governments must be forced to take serious measures at all levels – prevention of VAW, protection of victims/survivors, prosecution of perpetrators. I am in favor of a global treaty on VAW.
