The UN Resolution 65/187 on the ‘Intensification of efforts to eliminate all forms of violence¬†against women’ was adopted by the General Assembly on 21 December 2010.

Reaffirming previous international agreements, it welcomes the efforts made by UN member states but simultaneously calls for an end to discriminatory legislation and practices. Data collection and awareness, financial support and the empowerment of women as well as the inclusion of men in campaigns on violence against women are suggested measures. Equal access to education and alleviating poverty especially of girls and women are also included.
