The Council has adopted two decisions according which the EU shall join the Council of Europe Convention (Istanbul Convention) on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence. However, while the Commission and the European Parliament had advocated for an extensive EU accession to this Convention, which would have resulted in an interference of the EU into educational and cultural matters, which fall within exclusive competences of Member States, Member States have successfully resisted these attempts. The compromise agreed in the Council falls significantly short of these pretensions, limiting EU accession to the issues of asylum, non-refoulment and judicial cooperation in criminal matters. It makes reference to Article 78 (2), 82, and 83 TFEU and to exclusive competences of the EU.

8 March, the so-called “International Women’s Day”, was first celebrated in the Soviet Union thanks to V. I. Lenin and his People’s Commissioner for Social Welfare, Alexandra Kollontai.

Norma McCorvey, the mother who sought an abortion in the infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade case in the US Supreme Court passed away on 18 February. The case in which she was referred to anonymously as Jane Roe ended in a ruling by the activist court which deemed that the US Constitution guaranteed a “right to abortion”, something found nowhere in the text, thereby striking down all laws by individual states which banned abortion.

Liberal newspaper The Economist reported in a cover story in 2010 about what it dubbed ‘Gendercide’ or ‘The War on Baby Girls’ causing 130 million unborn or newborn girls to be murdered. Seven years later it seems that raising awareness of this crime against humanity has contributed to a decline in the barbaric practices. Even so, there are long-lasting devastating effects on many Asian societies. Continue reading
