A concrete plan to fight violence against women and girls demands recognizing its various forms in regions across the globe.

This from European Union (EU) Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica, who will participate in the launch of the “Spotlight Initiative” at UN Headquarters on Wednesday.
