International Human Rights Day 2013 "Violence against women and human rights"

Teatro Accademico, Castelfranco Veneto (TV), Wednesday 11th December 2013. A human rights based reflection on sexual discrimination and violence against women. Possible operational responses for protection.

Speaking about human rights means being aware of having a high personal and social responsibility to be spent in terms of solidarity and civic engagement. The drafters of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights intended human rights as "practical truths".
