Spanish women in most danger in their own homes

Mon 3rd May 2010

Spanish women are more likely to be murdered by a family member, partner or ex-partner than a stranger, researchers say.

A recent study carried out by Madrid's Centro Reina Sofía, compiles data from 70 countries between 2000 and 2006 and shows how Spain is still below both the world and European average for fatal attacks carried out on women.

The figures analyzed for the study period showed how a total of 5.15 women per million were killed on average, compared to the EU's 9.9 per million and the worldwide average of 19 per million.

Reported incidents of domestic violence also rose between 2000 and 2006 in just four countries - of which Spain was the third, behind only Cyprus and Colombia.

The Director of the Centro Reina Sofía concluded "Spanish women are safer in the street than they are in their own homes."
