Form of Violence Violence against women and girls

Brief Description

Previously, two baseline reports on emergency shelters and accommodation for women victims of violence have been produced in Switzerland. Both reports have focused on the situation of adult women victims of violence. The Federal Office for Gender Equality (FOGE) produced a study to establish statistics on girls and young women exposed to violence and, on the other hand, to take stock of the need for care places in Switzerland for girls and young women affected by physical, psychological and sexual violence, whether in their own homes or in their environment.
