"Violence against women is a failure of our society as a whole, which has failed, in the path of liberation undertaken by women in the last century, to accept a fully equal concept of couple relations".

This violence "originates from a distorted view of the relationship between man and woman, which sees the latter as an object and in any case as a subject not worthy of full respect. It is in the idea of ​​inferiority that pervades, still too often, the approach to the female question, in which the roots of all forms of violence lie ".

The Head of State, Sergio Mattarella, writes it. 

 "It is essential that women who have been subjected to violence feel a world around them that welcomes and protects them, to allow them to come out of silence and free themselves from that fence where violence was born. Only with a society ready to support the victims it will be possible to defeat violence against women. This is why the activities carried out every day by institutions, associations, volunteers and volunteers who try to build shelters to treat and prevent episodes of violence are important ", writes the President of the Republic.

 "To get out of this spiral - he adds - it is necessary to educate: to educate to respect, to educate to equality, to educate to the idea that force can never constitute an instrument of dialogue. This education must already be spread in families and then in schools, from early childhood ".

"This Day requires us to confront, every year, with intolerable numbers - continues the president - which testify to a continuous, widespread and still inextricable violence against women. Our society is still pervaded, in different territories and in various contexts, by episodes of violence, verbal, economic, physical, fruit of the unacceptable idea that men can abuse women by using force. other family members, friends and people who try to intervene to stem this crazy spiral ". 

"Prevention requires listening, interventions, support networks and in many cases tools to offer women an alternative for a free life. The dependence, often of an economic nature, in which many of them find themselves is an obstacle to the search for protection and to the same denunciation of violent episodes. There is still a long way to go, but we must continue to work, individually and with collective action, because eliminating violence against women is an essential objective for our common life ", concludes the Head of State.
