Meeting around national research on violence against women held

The National Statistics Service (GeoStat) held a discussion about the national survey of violence against women at the Tbilisi Marriott Hotel.

Tinatin Berdzenishvili, General Director of the Georgian Public Broadcaster, Gogita Todradze, Head of the National Statistics Service, and UN officials who protect women’s rights attended the event.

GPB is a supporter of the study. It joined the movement to abolish gender-based violence.

“The GPB, in collaboration with its partners, makes every effort to keep society informed about the situation. This is the second time such a large-scale study has been undertaken. We will try to follow the process,” Tinatin Berdzenishvili stated.

The GeoStat will conduct the research with UN Women’s funding and technical assistance. The fieldwork will take place in October and November, with 4400 respondents from Georgia participating. A total of 90 interviewers will get specialized training.

The research will collect data on women and men aged 15 to 69, including their financial resources, jobs, health, spouses or partners, and any occurrences of sexual harassment, injuries, or violence on their part. The findings will be published in 2023.

The first study was completed in 2017 and is available on the GeoStat website.
