Curiously enough, the Government of Spain, the European Union and the UN, conduct studies on gender violence in which surveyed only women, NEVER men, such as the study FRA Survey, conducted by Women Against Violence Europe, branch sponsored by the EU and that, mysteriously, after several emails and contact between Justiciadegenero.com and EU President, Jean Claude Juncker, The Commissioner for Justice and Equality Věra Jourová and the Director of Equality Salla Saastamoinen, has been removed from the web. Hiding the truth?. (At the time we send such emails to various international media, in order to extract their own conclusions)
The study showed that 22% of Spanish women surveyed said they had experienced physical and / or sexual violence from their partners or former partners. The funny thing is that Belgium showed 36%, Denmark 52%, Finland 47%, France 44%, Germany 35%, Luxembourg 38%, Netherlands 45%, Sweden 46%, UK 44%. Spain was by far one of the EU countries with the lowest rate.
Well, we show you studies by different Spanish universities and international studies, in which women and men surveys are conducted.
Uuuppps !!!!!, The results are very different, the studies are realized to both sexes. May be violence, as everyone knows but nobody dares to say in Spain, is BIDIRECTIONAL:
Perception and description of violent experience in youth dating relationships -Universidad de Sevilla, Universidad de Oviedo, Universidad de Huelva
To describe the intimate partner violence suffered by youth and to identify the descriptions that best classify it according to gender.
A cross-sectional study was carried out among a sample of 3,087 adult Spanish students. The CUVINO questionnaire was used, which measures 8 forms of intimate partner violence and uses 3 descriptions to classify it (abuse, fear and entrapment). Logistic regressions were carried out to identify differences by gender and associations between the subtypes of intimate partner violence and descriptions of the violent experience.
Nearly half of the sample (44.6%) had some situation of unperceived violence, mainly of “detachment” (30.0%) and “coercion” (25.1%). All subtypes of intimate partner violence were more frequently perpetrated by women. The largest difference by gender was found in “emotional punishment” (experienced by 20.9% of men vs. 7.6% of women) and “physical violence” (6.6% vs. 2.3%). A total of 28.7% felt trapped, 11.8% felt fear and 6.3% felt mistreated. Men more frequently described themselves as trapped, but less often as afraid or abused. The subtype of intimate partner violence most associated with the feeling of entrapment was coercion in both men (OR=3.8) and women (OR=5.7).
Men and women face intimate partner violence while dating differently; resources are needed to address them specifically. The inclusion of routine questions about the sense of entrapment may contribute to the early detection of intimate partner violence. Subtle forms of violence, such as coercion, should be taken into account in awareness campaigns.
False Reports of Gender Violence Spain: ¿Myth or Fact?. Universidad Camilo José Cela
Abstract. Following the adoption of the Organic Law 1/2004 of 28 December on Integrated Protection Measures against Gender Violence, Spain has become the first European country to have multidisciplinary legislation in effect.
This law considers educational criteria, prevention and punishment. The fact that this law is associated to positive discrimination and, only consideres men as the authors of punishable behavior assuming women as the only victims, has generated a heated social debate and even serious questions as to the constitutionality of this law (Sanmartín, Iborra and García Esteve Martínez Sánchez, 2010).
The debate over the existence of possible “false accusations” doesn’t help to clarify the real information associated with this phenomena. To do so, the information should be considered in the light of equal rights so that correct and effective decisions can be made.
META-ANALYSIS OF RESEARCH ON GENDER VIOLENCE: THE STATE PRODUCING KNOWLEDGE Universidad complutense
This paper provides a meta-analysis (quantitative/qualitative) empirical research on gender violence or violence against women, made in Spain in the period 2005 to 2012. Through it has been found to control this device to know the state. Control is exercised: usurping the role of direct research (specifically analyze the case of the Macro Institute of Women); imposing certain theoretical and methodological constraints in the research process and even introducing their agents openly part of university research teams. Political interference is never free for long disguise who wants justify intervening effectively. In short, this article makes visible the lack of scientific autonomy derived from state control (regardless of the political color of the government of the day) on research on gender violence in Spain.
