". Question No 47 by Maj Theorin (): Measures designed to tackle violence against women are often of a curative nature and target women and girls, e.g. support for hostels where women can seek refuge with their children, and rehabilitation of victims of violence. Such measures are necessary but we must go beyond the symptoms and the effects of violence in order to overcome the problem. Combating violence calls for a dual strategy. Violence must be combated by addressing the structural causes of violence B by focusing on men=s attitudes and behaviour B and by legislation which prohibits all violence against women, including domestic violence. Several Member States do not have such legislation at the present time. What practical measures will the Commission take to bring about legislation banning all violence against women and to combat the structural causes of violence against women?"@en1
