Why is sexual crimes against women increasing in France?
Cases of sexual violence and sexual abuse for women in France continue to increase.
In France, in the first 7 months of 2018, a 23.1 percent increase in sexual violence against women was determined by last year. However, Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said the stuffed keyring MeToo movement has been influenced by the increase in sexual crimes.
This movement that spreads to the world is thought to encourage women to complain more easily.
According to the French Ministry of Internal Affairs, the number of women who suffered sexual violence was 22 thousand 533 in the first seven months of 2017, while the number increased to 27 thousand 728 in the same period of 2018.
Emphasising that the increase is “alarming “, Collomb said, “It is important to avoid these cases and to complain about women more easily.”
With the new system, women will easily complain
Next October, a new method in France to facilitate the complaint of women more easily enters the walk. Women who are afraid or hesitate to complain to the police in cases of sexual abuse and violence will now be able to complain to the police anonymously on the internet. The police will be able to initiate an investigation.
On the other hand, a recent study revealed that Sweden was the country where most rape cases were seen in Europe.
However, the Swedish government is tied to two important reasons for the high number of rape figures. The penalty for rape crimes is too heavy for many countries. In addition, many people complain that there are laws that make it easier for women to complain.
