At the end of 2018, in the wake of the #MeToo movement, the Women's Foundation published a first edition of the report "Where's the money to combat violence against women?", calling on public authorities to address the lack of financial resources allocated to this major issue.

In a new edition of the report published on September 25, 2023, supported by Crédit Municipal de Paris, the Women's Foundation once again raises this essential question and takes stock of the budget devoted by the State to combating violence against women.

Every year in France, more than three million women are subjected to domestic, sexist and/or sexual violence. More and more women are reporting it. Yet the government devotes just 0.04% of its budget to combating such violence - in other words, state support for every woman victim of domestic violence has fallen by 25% in 4 years. This report thus illustrates a worrying paradox: while we have never talked so much about violence against women, the way it is dealt with is less satisfactory than it was before #MeToo.

The report comes to a clear conclusion: at least 2.6 billion euros a year are needed to protect women victims of violence. The Foundation makes recommendations, identifying priority areas for action and the levers to be activated.

In addition to the essential increase in state budgets devoted to the fight against violence, the Women's Foundation proposes several means of action:

- Read the report "Where's the money to combat violence against women? " to find out what's at stake.

- Sign the petition demanding that the government devote at least 2.6 billion euros to combating violence against women

- Support the emergency fund to help local associations on the verge of bankruptcy, leaving many women without a solution.
