Spotlight on Spanish campaign to tackle economic violence against women

The Foundation for Single Parent Families “Isadora Duncan” based in Leon (Spain) and member of COFACE, has been working for many years against gender violence and launched a campaign to make economic violence visible and to work on its prevention. The campaign includes the design and elaboration of different materials and resources as tools for information, prevention, awareness-raising and detection of situations of economic violence.

It includes video clips which reflect real situations of economic violence experienced by women and their families. There is also a guide which offers basic notions about economic violence and financial abuse, how to prevent these situations, how to act and how to establish a good economic relationship in a couple. It is a reference document both for women who suffer or may suffer situations of financial violence and for the people who are part of the life of these families and for professionals who are involved in a situation of financial violence.

For the international day for the elimination of violence against women on 25th November 2023, they organised different awareness-raising actions.

Further information on economic violence across Europe, this EIGE factsheet provides definitions, information on different approaches to economic violence across the EU, and recommendations for better harmonised data collection in this field.
