This week Global Rights for Women is in Ankara, Turkey working with the government to monitor the use of an electronic monitoring system that is intended to ensure the safety of domestic violence victims. Turkey included a bold provision allowing such electronic monitoring in their 2012 domestic violence law.
Global Rights for Women makes it a top priority to assess how new laws on violence against women are truly working in the daily lives of women. Are they keeping women safe? Are they holding violent abusers accountable?
