Violence against women, which encompasses crimes that disproportionately impact on women such as sexual assault, rape and ‘domestic violence’, is a violation of women’s fundamental rights with respect to dignity, equality and access to justice. Its impact stretches beyond those women who are themselves victims of violence, since it affects families, friends and society as a whole. They call for a critical look at how society and the state respond to this abuse.

Civil society actors and inter-governmental organisations, including the United Nations (UN) Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women and the Council of Europe, have sought in recent decades to highlight the extent and nature of violence against women. Initiatives at the level of individual EU Member
States have supported this process. The publication of the FRA survey data demonstrates that violence against
women is as an extensive and wide-ranging fundamental rights abuse which touches on many women’s lives in the EU.
