The violence that women face on the streets and in transport is regularly denounced. The Virage survey, conducted in 2015 by the National Institute of Demographic Studies, provides a better understanding of what women and men live in public spaces: what violence are people exposed to (verbal, physical, sexual intercourse)? What are the characteristics of the people most affected? These are the main questions that this article intends to answer.
