Algeria: Adoption of a bill fighting against violence against women

Did you know? After a nine-month blocking at the National Assembly, the bill on violence against women arrived to the Senate that adopted it integrally on 11 December 2015.

NGOs expressed their relief, but called for continued efforts to make sure application decrees are adopted and followed by concrete effects.
