Do you know the correct figures concerning violence against women?
Answer these questions to find out.
In 2017 the actress Alyssa Milano relaunched the #Metoo hashtag which was created 10 years earlier. Its French version #BalanceTonPorc is also keen to break the silence. In your opinion, what percentage of women has spoken up as part of the #Metoo movement?
71% of women who are victims of harassment have spoken out thanks to the #MeToo movement.
The #MeToo hashtag was relaunched during the Weinstein affair. It has become the watchword to free speech for victims of aggression and sexual harassment which has rapidly taken off as the result of action on social media.
How many women who are victims of violence go to the police or a court of law?
Less than 1 woman in 10 in France seeks help from the Police or the Law.
This study has been carried out by the Fondation des Femmes and reflects a real difference between the facts and actions that follow and the injustice that remains for all women.
How many women die every three days at the hands of their partner ?
130, that's the number of feminicides in France in 2017, that means 1 woman dies every 3 days on average.
Femicide is the murder or one or more women on account of their gender. It is the result of a course of violence which is firstly psychological and verbal, then physical.
The Fondation des Femmes supports female victims of violence on an everyday basis. How many of them are satisfied with their care from associations?
At least 3 out of 4 women say they are satisfied with how things are handled.
These associations enable victims to get access to information, tools and support which enable easy access and greater autonomy in the access to justice.
