Types of Violence - France

First study on violence against women living in rural areas

12.07.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

The idea of this unprecedented study comes from Words of Women of the city of Gaillac, an association specializing in the care for women victims of violence and as its President, Elisabeth Fournier, explains "this work was important to us." This Association of the Tarn has gathered 11 member associations of Solidarité Femmes, 3 in the Pays de Loire and 8 in the Midi-Pyrénées. They then carried out a study based on the situation of 730 women in 2011/2012 and 1134 women in 2014 in the two regions. The objective was to make the general public aware of what was still very invisible.
