Attitudes towards violence against women in the EU
Violence against women remains a major social, public health, and human rights problem in the EU. Violence against women is a complex phenomenon that needs to be understood within the wider social context and within the social and cultural norms that permeate it. Public attitudes and responses regarding violence against women reflect these norms and play an important role in shaping the social climate in which the violence occurs. Comprehending attitudes towards violence against women is key to better understanding its root causes and, therefore, developing more effective intervention measures.
