Rome, June 19 - The Italian Senate unanimously
approved the 2011 Istanbul Convention on preventing and
combating violence against women and domestic violence on
Wednesday.
Before the vote, which makes the measure that passed in the
Lower House on June 4 operative, MPs paused for a minute of
silence in memory of women victims of violence.
"We dedicate this vote to all women victims of violence.
Before moving on to this vote, which is so important for our
parliamentary history, let's remember all women and girls who in
life and death have suffered physical or psychological
violence," Deputy Speaker Linda Lanzillotta said.
The Istanbul Convention characterizes violence against
women as a form of discrimination and as a violation of human
rights.
It also defines a number of punishable crimes against
women, including psychological violence, stalking, physical
violence, sexual violence and rape, forced marriage, female
genital mutilation, forced abortion, forced sterilization and
sexual harassment.
