Considered economically inactive, the woman/man “caring” full time in the home, do not have any income of their own. This situation of dependency makes it difficult for them to oppose domestic and family violence if ever they (and/or their children) are confronted with it.

Do we know the needs of women/men homemakers who are the victims of family violence? Are there data on the causes of this violence? on the answers given and their impact on family life?

F.E.F.A.F. requests

  • To respect the decision taken by many women/ and men to to put their priorities with caring for children and relatives, which results in a situation of economic and psychological dependence
  • To make sure that these women and men are included in all European policies against family and domestic violence
