EU-OSHA supports campaign to end violence against women


Orange the world: End violence against women now! This is the global theme for this year’s 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, which runs from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December 2021, Human Rights Day.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, emerging data and reports from those on the front lines, have shown that all types of violence against women and girls, particularly domestic violence, has intensified.

EU-OSHA joins the call for global action to increase awareness and share knowledge to support the development of practical measures for combating gender-based violence.

Our infographic on sexual harassment at work and a web section on women and safety and health at work can also help you raise awareness on the necessary gender sensitive perspective in the workplace.
