CEAS calls on the Commissioner for Equality to be less discriminatory in her activities-CEAS on the occasion of International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, the Center for Euro-Atlantic Studies from Belgrade (CEAS) calls on the Commissioner for the Protection of Equality to be less discriminatory, but rather more inclusive, in her, otherwise welcomed, condemnation of verbal and other forms of violence against women, as well as other measures within her purview. Women in public life who are not in power also deserve institutional protection against systemic misogyny, threats and intimidation, including those who in their public work advocate punishment for war crimes, Serbia's cooperation with or membership in NATO, countering harmful Russian influence, or point to the spread of narratives with no scientific merit such as the "cancer epidemic in Serbia", instead of offering it just to opposition journalists and activists, at best. As it happens, the Commissioner condemns the perpetrators of violence against women in some cases, but not in other, although much longer lasting, and yet the offenders in both cases are one and the same.

In this perfidious way, they protected some vested political and financial interests, not the interests of Serbia's citizens.
