Types of Violence - - Europe

Disrupting the continuum of violence against Women and girls

13.03.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

Despite progress over the last decades on equality between women and men, there is not a single country in the world where women and girls are free from male violence, and there is not a single area in any woman’s life where she is not exposed to the threat or reality of acts of male violence. One in three women in the EU, or 62 million women, has experienced physical and/or sexual violence since the age of 15. That is why the European Women’s Lobby created this factsheet which includes data, campaigns and stories that illustrate the reality of violence against women and girls in Europe today.
