The National Study on Violence against Women, carried out in 2017 by the National Statistics Office of Georgia (GEOSTAT) in partnership with UN Women and with the generous support of the European Union, fills the gap of nationally representative data on various forms of violence against women and girls (VAWG) in Georgia, including but not limited to intimate partner violence, violence during pregnancy, sexual harassment, stalking, childhood experiences of violence and gender attitudes. The data generated by the Study also provides a baseline for the indicators of the nationalized Sustainable Development Goals and offers evidence to policymakers and practitioners to inform effective response to VAWG in Georgia.
