To mark International Women's Rights Day, the Valérie Messika Foundation hosted a dinner for a number of women committed to defending and protecting women. It was an opportunity to exchange views and highlight their actions in the field.
Domestic violence was at the heart of the discussion: it is a danger to women's safety and development. Society's silence encourages it to continue. In 2021, 122 women were killed by their partner or ex-partner. This means that in France, one woman dies every 3 days, killed by her partner or ex-partner (Ministry of the Interior).
