Help to rebuild and start again.

The government will experiment from January with a “new start pack” to “better support” victims of domestic violence, explained this Saturday Isabelle Rome, minister responsible for gender equality.

“It can be an allowance, a skip-the-line system for childcare, professional integration or training, emergency accommodation, psychological support,” she said on Franceinfo the day after World Day. against violence against women.

The device will be "experimented from January on different territories", in particular rural, urban and overseas areas.

"It is not necessary" that the victim of violence "go knock on several doors but that she has a single interlocutor who will trigger all the measures", she said.

“I presided over assize courts, judged many feminicides.

I noted that it was very difficult for the victims to leave, to extract themselves from the claws of their executioner, often they had to go back and forth several times.

This pack wants to avoid these false starts,” added the former magistrate.

The report expected in early March

In addition, the report of the mission entrusted to two parliamentarians to reflect on “specialized justice” in violence against women will be delivered “at the beginning of March”, she specified.

“It is necessary that all the actors be very well trained and that a dedicated system be put in place to best deal with this violence” intra-family, she explained.

“If we don't understand what control is” or “the devastating impact of violence within the couple on children”, we “leave women, we leave children in danger”.

The parliamentary mission is responsible for proposing the “best system, which must reconcile specificity and proximity”, and will be a first step towards specialized justice, she said.
