According to the 2016 Eurobarometer survey on GBV, while there is widespread agreement among Europeans that domestic violence, sexual harassment and other acts of GBV are unacceptable, it still occurs widely (e.g. 74% of respondents said that domestic violence against women is common in their country). The survey also revealed that almost one in five (17%) agree violence against women is often provoked by the victim.
The 2014 EU Agency for Fundamental Rights “Violence against women” survey results show that since the age of 15 one in three women (33%) in the EU has experienced physical or sexual violence or both. Therefore, this data proves that efforts are still needed for the prevention and combating GBV.
By mainstreaming a culture-based educational methodology, including art-based online games/applications and the involvement of children museums and schools, Ed.G.E aims at educating and raising awareness to girls and boys on gender equality and GBV.
