FRA to present the findings of its EU-wide survey on violence against women

On 5 March, FRA will present the findings from the world’s largest survey on violence against women at the high-level conference “Violence against women across the EU: Abuse at home, work, in public and online” in Brussels.

Key speakers

The FRA event is being hosted in cooperation with the Hellenic Presidency of the Council of the EU at the Justus Lipsius building of the Council of the EU.

The survey was based on face-to-face interviews with 42,000 women across the EU’s 28 Member States. Women were asked about their experiences of physical, sexual and psychological violence, childhood victimisation, sexual harassment and stalking, including new mediums for abuse such as the internet.

The conference will bring together decision makers and practitioners to discuss the findings and their importance for EU and national policy makers. About 250 representatives from EU institutions and bodies, international organisations, national governments and parliaments, national human rights bodies and civil society are expected to attend.
