Toll-free number for women victims of violence, shortly (Neziha Abidi)

Women, Family and Child Affairs Minister Neziha Abidi announced on Friday that a toll-free number accessible 24/7 to all women victims of violence will be operational shortly, in order to provide them with the necessary support.

“The ministry also intends to launch extension works of the centres that provide support to women victims of violence,” she added at a national round table held in Tunis on the “ministerial conclusions to the development of gender equality policies in Tunisia.”

Taking the floor at the round table organised at the initiative of the Association of Tunisian Women for Research on Development (AFTURD), senior police commissioner Raoudha Bayoudh called for the need to strengthen the preventive role of security structures in fight against gender-based violence.

She suggested that a communication strategy be set up to raise awareness of this form of violence and increase the recruitment rate of women in the national security services.

Bayoudh also considered it imperative to generalise units responsible for combating violence against women under the Interior Ministry.

The round table follows a set of regional and national meetings and consultations in the MENA countries organised in partnership with the Euromed Feminist Initiative IFE-EFI organisations and members.

This one-year process brought together over 600 stakeholders and finalised the Regional Gender Platform (GRP) with political recommendations aimed to reinforce the status of women’s rights and gender equality.
