Women’s rights report

Women’s rights report - The Committee for the Promotion and Protection of Women's Rights and the IMSEE in the Principality have published the first publication on violence against women in Monaco. The information was collected and analyzed by IMSEE from various reference sources in the Principality: Directorate of Public Safety, Directorate of Judicial Services, CHPG, Association for Aid to Victims of Criminal Offenses (AVIP).

According to the police, 31 acts of violence were committed against women on Monegasque territory in 2019. In almost 60% of cases, it was physical violence and for 25% sexual violence. The AVIP received 40 women victims of violence in 2019. In 83% of the cases, the violence was committed by the victim's spouse or ex-spouse.

In reponse to the report Mme.Céline Cottalorda, Interministerial Delegate for the Promotion and Protection of Women's Rights, said “This concrete advance allows us to acknowledge the facts of domestic violence. However, the figures only reflect the quantifiable and revealed part of violence against women ”.
