"Standing here before all of you, I promise that we, current memebers, will continue to do our best for the Observatory to remain the space for sharing and building knowledge, highlighting advances and set-backs, identifying critical and emerging issues and reacting upon those. As long as one woman is raped, beaten, harassed, prostituted or killed in Europe, because she is a woman, the Observatory will be there and continue to do its work. Loud and united!" said Vanja Macanovic.
