Violence against women: an EU-wide survey

16.02.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

The scale of violence against women is not reflected by official data in the EU, in many cases women don´t report violence, thus the only source in many cases is the official criminal justice data that are only able to record those few cases that are reported...This survey responds to a request for data on violence against women from the European Parliament. It is based on 42,000 in-person interviews with a random sample of women across the 28 EU Member States. The interviewed women were asked about their experiences of physical, sexual and psychological violence, including incidents of intimate partner violence (‘domestic violence’). The survey also included questions on stalking, sexual harassment, and the role played by new technologies in women’s experiences of abuse.
