Socialist MP Valérie Rabault described Wednesday, October 5 as

“mind blowing”

the fact that the government is lowering the objectives set for the 3919 hotline, set up for victims of domestic violence.

"Fight against violence against women: mind

-blowing," she wrote on Twitter, above the screenshot of a budget document annexed to the government's 2023 finance bill.

“The government announces that the quality of service objective for 2023 has been revised downwards

(75% instead of 85% for the rate of calls handled)

for the helpline, continues the MP

She adds that the Socialists

"will table an amendment so that sufficient means are given to 3919 so that the calls can be processed"

and invites

"all the deputies of the Assembly to vote for this amendment"

within the framework of the examination of the budget by the National Assembly.

"We are awaiting explanations"

from Aurore Bergé, the leader of the Renaissance deputies, reacted the Insoumis deputy Manuel Bompard by relaying Valérie Rabault's message on Twitter, the day after a pass of arms in the hemicycle between Ms. Bergé and LFI around the subject of gender-based and sexual violence.

"Need additional funding and hiring"

The indicator referred to by Valérie Rabault, Vice-President of the National Assembly, is established by relating the number of calls to 3919 actually handled to the number of calls received.

According to the budget document she mentions, a target of 85% had been set for the period 2021-2023, but the government decided to lower it to 75% in 2023 to take account of call traffic which

"remains very sustained"

and now open 24 hours a day which

"still requires adjustments to best size human resources"


“There, we are at 75-80%, the state services have rectified this objective in view of reality, because we have an increase in calls which continues, in particular on weekends and in the evening”

, explained to AFP Françoise Brié, president of the National Federation Solidarity Women (FNSF), which manages the line 3919

. in the evening”

, she added, reporting

“250 calls per day on weekends”

compared to

“150 per day on weekends”

in 2019.

“We will need additional funding and hiring in 2023 to increase the number of listeners and increase the quality of service

,” added Françoise Brié.

“To stabilize the teams and improve recruitment, we need salary increases

,” she also argued.

Line 3919 receives calls from women victims of gender-based and sexual violence.

It deals with those concerning domestic violence and directs rape victims to another hotline, managed by the Collectif Féministe Contre le Viol (CFCV).
