Violence against women: Poland to leave European treaty

The justice minister of Poland, Zbigniew Ziobro, has announced that his country will leave the Istanbul Convention - a treaty that aims to prevent violence against women.

He claims that it "contains elements of an ideological nature" as it requires all signed countries to teach children about gender.

Women across the country have protested on thousands.
