We will step up our efforts to combat gender-based violence and harmful practices, including honour-related violence and oppression. All forms of violence, including physical, psychological, economic and sexual violence, must stop. It is about the right to live your life as you choose and decide over your own body and finances. We also need to focus more on justice and gender equality in health, and on the right of all women and men to a good working environment.


Paulina Brandberg was born in 1983. She lives in Stockholm and is married with two children.
