The petitioner requests that the EU reviews and bans the “tradition” of the Easter Monday Whipping and Water-pouring of women.

The tradition entails:

  • Groups of male pass by the houses of women and "playfully" catch a female.
  • They drench her with buckets of ice-cold water and whip her with willow branches. Women are held by men so that they cannot escape the "playful" drenching and the whipping.
  • Once released, men are to be rewarded for their “services”. A female is to obediently thank her guests, offer them refreshments and even money.
  • Female is expected to tie a ribbon on the willow whips with which they have been lashed. Men compete to collect as many ribbons as possible. (each ribbon represents one female)

This tradition can be severely detrimental to both female physical and mental well-being immediately and into the future and might project women as obedient subordinates.
