Unicef Monitoring the Situation of Women

Unicef Monitoring the Situation of Women

[EN] I was wondering if this infographic was too strong to start the season after summer break. But I spent the summer reading Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson and if you are one of the 9 million people who read it too, you’ll see the connection.

The graph, taken from  Global Health Magazine and made from Unicef data, shows the percentage of women aged 15–49 responding that a husband or partner is justified in hitting or beating his wife under certain circumstances.

I checked if I could find some reports on Europe too and I found Wave Networks reports (a network of European women’s non-governmental organisations working in  the field of combating violence against women and children): take a look at their activities!

[IT] Mi chiedevo se questa infografica fosse un po’ troppo forte per iniziare la stagione dopo la pausa estiva. Ma ho passato l’estate immersa in Millennium, la trilogia di Stieg Larsson e se sei uno/a dei 9 milioni che l’ha letto,  capirai la connessione.

Il grafico, prodotto da Global Health Magazine con dati dell’Unicef,  mostra la percentuale di donne tra i 15 e i 49 anni che giustificano mariti e compagni che picchiano la propria partner in determinate circostanze.

Ho cercato info sulla situazione in Europa e ho trovato i report di Wave Networks (network delle associazioni non governative che combattono la violenza sulle donne e bambini): dai un’occhiata alle loro attività.
