Initial premise of the Autonomous Women's Center is that policies, in order to fight against violence against women, at the local and national level should be consistent with international standards and good practices in this field. In accordance with the strategic goals, that the Convention of the United Nations and the Council of Europe should be implemented well by the state and that in the process of joining the European Union we must respect the human rights of women, Autonomous Women's Center consistently monitors the implementation of and advocates for a comprehensive, coherent, relevant, specific, efficient and effective national policies against violence against women.

The Autonomous Women's Center commented on the Draft Law on Social Cards. Although the systematic solution to the problem of obtaining documentation for exercising rights in the field of social protection should facilitate the position of beneficiaries, we are of the opinion that the proponent did not offer adequate solutions to a number of issues to which the Draft Law relates.

The AWC has indicated that there is no clear purpose and reason for certain provisions, that the solutions offered are too wide, even open (which gives the possibility of extension of meaning), while at the same time it concerns private and especially sensitive data of citizens, which leads to a serious concern regarding the possibility of misuse of different data.
