Danish women most sexually-abused in EU
(03-05 13:07)

Women in Denmark suffer the most sexual abuse among European Union countries, a large-scale survey by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights, found.
At the top end, 52 percent of women in Denmark were said to have suffered physical and/or sexual abuse, while the rate was 47 percent in Finland and 46 percent in Sweden.
At the other end of the scale, the report found that 19 percent of women in Poland had suffered in the same way, 20 percent in Austria and 21 percent in Croatia.
The survey also cited a World Health Organisation finding of “a relationship between perpetrators' drinking habits and women's experiences of domestic violence,’’ noting that differing drinking patterns among countries could help explain certain aspects of such abuse.—AFP
