ISTANBUL CONVENTION ON WOMEN'S RIGHTS

That this House calls on governments across Europe to ratify the Istanbul Convention on Women's Rights; believes the Convention to be an influential tool to tackle violence which affects the lives of millions of women in Europe; further believes that countries which ratify the treaty have an obligation to support victims of violence; notes a report by the EU Fundamental Rights Agency stating that one in three women across the 28 EU Member States has suffered physical violence since the age of 15; and calls on the UK Government to commit to women's human rights by ratifying the Istanbul Convention.
