One in three women has suffered physical or sexual violence at least once in their lifetime (according to UN Women and WHO). Gender-based violence is both the cause and result of gender inequality. This scourge has been severely exacerbated due to the Covid-19 pandemic leading to a dangerous surge of a longstanding and deeply rooted problem.

FEPS and Foundation Jean-Jaurès have joined forces to publish a series of publications to shed light on specific dimensions of gender-based violence.
