ROME, March 8,2018-- Over 80 percent of Italian women believe gender violence has increased in the past two years, according to a report by the Institute for Political, Social and Economic Studies (EURISPES) out Wednesday.
 
In a report ahead of International Women's Day on March 8, the Rome-based think tank found that a majority of Italian females aged 18-65 think violence against them is on the rise, in spite of an anti-stalking law introduced in 2009.
 
At least 12.6 percent of respondents said they experienced stalking first-hand while 32.5 percent said they know a stalking victim, according to the report.
 
A majority of the stalkers were ex-boyfriends or husbands (34.3 percent), followed by acquaintances (17.1 percent), work colleagues (14.3 percent), relatives (11.4 percent), friends (10 percent), and current boyfriends or husbands (4.3 percent).
