Domestic violence – the case of Sweden during the pandemic
Globally, a third of women that have ever been in a relationship report that they have experienced some form of physical or sexual violence at the hands of their partner. Almost 40% of murders of women are committed by an intimate partner (WHO, 2013) and an additional 25% by another family member (UNODC, 2019).
Sweden is unfortunately no exception to these patterns, despite the strong culture of gender equality. Watch the presentation hosted by Utbildningsradion (UR) as Assistant Professor Maria Perrotta Berlin shares her insights on why domestic violence have increased since the start of COVID-19 pandemics.
