We have seen already that one in three women suffer at the hands of their intimate relations almost everywhere. It is the sasme in europe too.
But in Spain, some 100 women are killed each year by abusive spouses or boyfriends with over 30,000 complaints of severe physical violence, while in Switzerland, a wealthy, democtratic country in Europe, the number of women who suffer physical and psychological abuse tops 20 per cent. In France, the subject became front-page news after the film actress, Marie Trintrignant, was beaten to death by her lover, singer Bertrand Cantat.
In Europe - Women earn less than men in all 27 European Union countries, according to a recent European Commission report. In 2005, the “pay gap” was 15% across the European Union. (source: Rich man, Poor Woman - economist.com).
In all the other ropean countries the rate at which women suffer or die at the hands of intimate relations is more or les the same. What a shame that women have to suffer like this in such advanced educated nations!
