ENCUESTA DE VIOLENCIA A MUJERES

The intervention sought to highlight the fact that, at the time, gender violence continued to be a private event excluded from public life. Drawing on the process intrinsic to surveys, the purpose was to denounce violence against women and make it visible within public settings.

 

The Encuesta de violencia a mujeres (EVM) (Survey on Violence Against Women (SVW)) was carried out in a standing voting box installed in public spaces, where passerby women were invited to answer a survey regarding their direct experiences with gender violence. A total of 2,167 women between the ages of 14 and 71 participated in 13 different sites.
