The Equality Unit of the University of Valencia carried out a campaign to raise awareness and prevent gender violence.


This action was framed in compliance with the measures provided for in the UVEG Equality Plan (2010-2012) as well as in the Operational Plan for this year, relating to the development of awareness-raising actions that promote the culture of equality and the eradication of gender violence (action 3.1.3), as well as actions for the prevention and early detection of inequality between men and women (action 3.1.4).


The published brochures warn about the potential risk situation of suffering mistreatment of women, for the simple fact of being, as well as the validity of masculinity and femininity models, origin of abusive behaviors that, to a large extent of the cases, they are difficult to detect to be considered "normal" or to be naturalized.


With this approach, this triptych proposes a test with 10 questions for each member of the couple (boy and girl) to assess the degree of abuse present in their relationship, both physically, as well as psychological or sexual, including threats, coercion , as well as control behaviors.


With the distribution of 2,000 bilingual brochures among the entire university community, the measure relating to the publication of information brochures on the most relevant aspects of the Plan is also met (action 1.2.3).
