Reality check on European services  for women and children survivors of violence: A Right for Protection and Support? 

Violence against women continues to be a major problem throughout europe. As a significant percentage of women experience violence, there is still a shortage of available women's services, as well as lack of awareness among women survivors of violence of services and other support options available to them.

 

On 5 march 2014, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) launched the results of the first european union-wide survey on violence against women.1 the survey is based on 42,000 face-to-face interviews conducted with women (aged 18-74) by trained female interviewers, between April and september 2012, in 28 eu member states. About 1,500 interviews (random samples) were conducted per country. the survey focused on women's personal experiences of physical, sexual, psychological and economic violence (partner violence), sexual harassment and stalking. the survey focused on women's experience since the age of 15 and in the last 12 months, but it also included questions on experience of violence before the age of 15.

 

Key findings show that one in three women has experienced some form of physical and/or sexual assault since the age of 15. this amounts to 62 million women in europe. one in 10 women has experienced some form of sexual violence since the age of 15, and one in 20 women has been raped since the age of 15. The survey pointed to a higher vulnerability of young women to be victimized.
