Brief Description


This report is a part of the Daphne project "Abused Women At Work - Workplace Policy for Exploited Women - a Trade Union Action."  The objective of the report is to uncover the character and extent of domestic violence in Denmark and as well as to focus on the influence this abuse has on women's work life.  The report will be used to qualify the work done in the Daphne project and be part of an analysis of similar research reports done in the Daphne project's partner countries, Spain and Lithuania.

The report consists of three parts:

  1. A definition of terms, a review of the different forms of violence and domestic violence characteristics.
  2. A description of the magnitude and character of violence against women in Denmark, with special emphasis on domestic violence propagated against women.  The statistics come primarily from the national database which has collected the newest numbers and reports as well as statistics from shelters. 
  3. A focus on abused women's working life based on qualitative interviews with victims of domestic violence and experts, as well as on the material that is available on abused women's work situation in Denmark.
