Violence against women (Easy read)

In this book you will read about laws against hurting women, what is wrong and what to do about it.

We asked more than 900 women in every country of the European Union. We asked over 40,000 women in total. We asked if anyone had been violent to them.

About one in three women say someone has hurt them physically.

Most women don't tell the police when someone hurts them.

We say that we should let doctors and nurses ask patients if someone has hurt them.

We say the police should have special people to help women who have been hurt. These special people know how to help.

We need to find out if people are helping women.
