They chose the symbolic date of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women to present their new device.
This Friday, November 25, the services of the Brittany region unveiled their "violence meter".
This document aims to alert women and men to domestic violence of which they may be victims.
Open your eyes to facts that are not "normal" but which are sometimes considered as such when they have been repeated on a daily basis for years.
Deprivation of liberty, criticism, control of exits, threats, denigration, forced sexual relations... Graduated from green to red, this "violence meter" is presented as a "tool for measuring, alerting and self-assessment of violations of rights" .
The idea of this awareness-raising tool had germinated in the minds of the elected representatives of the regional youth council, which had received the support of the Council for equality between men and women in Brittany.
The region had already distributed this document in the high schools and training centers it manages.
