Rome, August 8 - The dozen measures contained in a
decree passed by the cabinet Thursday against violence towards
women shows Italy is taking a serious stand against femicide,
said Premier Enrico Letta.
''We promised tough action against everything that goes
under the name of femicide, now that promise is kept,'' Letta
said after the decree was passed.
''At the heart of this decree, we want to send a strong
signal of radical change on the subject''.
The bill comes as awareness is rising in Italy of the high
levels of violence against women.
The bill aims to prevent, punish and protect women from
violence, said Deputy Premier Angelino Alfano.
Measures in the bill promise fast action on violence
against women, said Alfano, who is also interior minister.
That means tougher rules against stalking and family abuse,
greater victim protection, in particular to shield migrant women
escaping violence.
