Violence against women and girls – at home, at work, on the streets and online – is a significant social problem. In 2014 the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) published the groundbreaking survey report Violence against women. For the first time, we have a study providing a detailed, comparative picture of the scale on which women and girls in Europe experience violence.
Atria puts these European statistics into the Dutch context in a concise and clear fashion.
What are the main outcomes of the FRA’s survey in the EU and what is the situation in the Netherlands? The European survey results for the Netherlands are compared, where possible, with the outcomes of earlier Dutch research.
