The government announced Wednesday, October 20, to have released one million euros over two years to support associations “working for equality between women and men in rural areas”, where “half of feminicides” occurs. “If violence within the couple affects all social circles, half of feminicides takes place in rural areas”, explained in a joint statement the Minister responsible for Gender Equality Elisabeth Moreno and the Secretary of State for Rurality Joël Giraud.
“The victims of this violence against women are often confronted with additional difficulties with an associative fabric less developed and therefore less accessible”, they continued. “This envelope will take the form of a call for expressions of interest which will make it possible to finance actions adapted to the specificities of rural areas.” The fields of action concerned are access to rights, the fight and prevention of violence against women in rural areas, and economic autonomy and professional integration of women in rural areas.
