Gender Violence

Violence against women is a violation of human rights that does not respect geographical, cultural or economic borders.

It is directed towards women for the very fact of being women, for being considered by their aggressors as people lacking the minimum rights of freedom and respect. Violence against minors and other dependents of women is also considered gender-based violence. In compliance with the Law, the Community of Madrid has been developing a whole set of care measures and programs for victims of gender violence that have led to the consolidation of a complete comprehensive care network for gender violence.
