If your boyfriend scares you: tell someone

Studies run by the Government Delegation on Gender-Based Violence have shown that violence against women continues to exist among Spain’s youth and school children. One of the main difficulties with gender-based violence is that victims often do not recognize themselves as such.  Which makes the ability for teenagers to detect the first signs of abuse absolutely critical.

With this in mind, BBVA is working in partnership with the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality on an initiative called “Business for a society free of gender-based violence”. As part of this, it is circulating among young people and their families a leaflet with information that will help them to identify abusive conduct, as well as publicizing the free 016 telephone line and the “Libres” app.

It is important that today’s youth understands and identifies the problem of gender-based violence and is able to recognize the first signs of abuse. This will see young people play a central role in driving progress toward a society free of violence against women, while supporting victims, condemning attitudes that justify abuse, and acting out of a conviction that men and women are equal, and that each individual has a right to dignity.
