SYRIZA announced the re-submission of the amendment in order to legally enshrine the term “gynaictony”, at the same time firing “fire” at the Government.
“The alt right and its Greek expression, ND, is not fighting against a term, but against women’s rights,” the party’s press representative said in a post N. Iliopoulos, citing WHO and UN.
Specifically, he said: “The World Health Organization had spoken in time about the risk of aggravation of gender-based violence. WHO and UN recognize the term femicide and the special power relations behind this crime. The alt right and its Greek expression, ND, she is not fighting against a term, but against women’s rights.
SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance will again submit an amendment for the legalization of the term. We know that it is not enough and it needs to be combined with the overall upgrading of the support structures for battered women, the change in the operation of the police and an overall battle to change perceptions within society. But it is a necessary step”.
Earlier, the issue was mentioned in a post on Facebook by the secretary of the party, Rania Svigou, pointing out that “It is not possible for a woman who reports abusive behavior to the authorities to then have to return to her abuser. They need structures, shelters, legal aid and psychological support”.
R. Svigo’s post in detail: “The 3rd femicide in 48 hours leaves no room for complacency. There are no more excuses. The term femicide should have been legalized yesterday.
SYRIZA-PS will resubmit the amendment, which unfortunately has already been rejected twice by the ND government in the last year.
But legal protection is not enough. A strong support framework is needed for victims of gender-based and domestic violence. It is not possible for a woman who reports abusive behavior to the authorities to then have to return to her abuser. They need structures, hostels, legal aid and psychological support.
And above all, we need as a State and as a society to make the victims feel safe to break the silence, before it is too late.
None alone, none less”.
