PARIS – More accommodation for domestic violence victims

The funding for 1,000 additional accommodation spaces for victims of domestic violence has been unlocked, announced Prime Minister Jean Castex on a visit to the Maison des femmes de Saint-Denis in the Greater Paris area.

This brings the overall number of places for women and children in need of help to 6,500.

France’s Minister Delegate for Equality between Women and Men, Elisabeth Moreno, assured that she “[will] do everything possible to ensure that (…) the mapping of these new accommodation facilities is equitable, whether in rural, urban or overseas areas.
