Violence against women

09 Jan

For English, scroll down


En France, tous les trois jours, une femme meurt des mauvais traitements de son conjoint. Plusieurs hommes meurent aussi (environ 30 par an), mais un tiers d’entre eux etait celui qui abusait sa compagne et a été tué lors d’un episode de legitime défense. Ces chiffres sont effrayants, n’est-ce pas?

Nous sommes en 2011, nous avions un ministère des droits de la femme, mais bizarrement, je n’ai pas retrouvé trace d’un quelconque ministère dans le gouvernement actuel. A croire que l’on a baissé les bras.

Plus de 130 femmes sont mortes en 2006 en France, et malgré tout ce qui a été mis en place (notamment le très utile 3919), les chiffres ne diminuent pas.

Pourquoi?

In France, every third day, one woman dies from the ill-treatment of her partner. A number of men die too (somewhere around 30 per year), but one third of them was the abuser who was terminated in a self-defence episode. These numbers are frightening, aren’t they?

It is now 2011, we have had a ministry to defend women’s right, but somehow, I have not found any mention of any kind of ministry in the actual government. Have we given up on them?

More than 130 women died in 2006 in France, and despite all that has been put in place (notably the very useful phone number 3919), the numbers do not diminish.

How come?
