The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights has today released its report Violence against women: an EU-wide survey, the fieldwork for which was conducted by Ipsos MORI and its partner agencies across all 28 EU Member States. This is the first EU-wide survey to collect data on women’s experiences of physical, sexual and psychological violence. Interviews were conducted with 42,000 women, aged between 18 and 74 living in the EU. Around 1500 interviews were conducted in each country, face-to-face with respondents selected on a random basis.
The survey findings provide valuable information for policy makers and stakeholders on the extent and nature of the violence being experienced by women, including details of the perpetrators of these crimes, the level of reporting to the relevant authorities, the physical and psychological consequences of these experiences and the type of help women would like to overcome their experiences. As well as addressing physical and sexual violence, the survey also covered psychological violence, stalking and sexual harassment.
