Travaux préparatoires à l'élaboration du Plan Violence et Santé en application de la loi relative à la politique de santé publique du 9 août 2004
Over the past 15 years, the results of over 50 studies on the prevalence of violence against women, domestic violence or spousal say, have been published worldwide. Overall, between 10% and 50% of women who lived with a partner experienced this type of violence and between 3% and 52% of them didn't report such physical violence during the year.
In France this type of violence has long been underestimated despite its size. Violence to women is yet a pandemic that affects all societies, all cultures, all social strata.
