Morocco/ Western Sahara: Comprehensive Legal Reform Needed to Address Gender- Based Violence

Legislative proposals currently under consideration to combat gender-based violence fail to respond adequately to the long-standing demands of Moroccan civil society for effective measures to prevent violence against women and girls and ensure justice and remedies to survivors of violence, said Amnesty International today, as it concluded a 16-day international campaign to raise awareness about gender-based violence as a human rights issue. The Moroccan authorities need to undertake comprehensive legal reform, within a broader shift of approach, to address this issue.
