On 5 March the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) will launch the results of the world’s biggest ever violence against women survey.

A launch conference will be hosted under the auspices of the Greek Presidency and will take place in the Council of the European Union in Brussels.

The survey findings are based on interviews with 42,000 women across the EU’s 28 Member States. Women were asked about their experiences of physical, sexual and psychological violence, including incidents of intimate partner violence (‘domestic violence’) as well as the consequences of such violence.
The survey also covered experiences of stalking, sexual harassment, their childhood experiences of violence and the role played by new technologies in women’s experiences of abuse.

Invitations, including a draft programme, and the possibility to register for the event, will be circulated in the second half of January.
Meanwhile, please save the date in your calendars!
