The pandemic COVID-19 has led to an escalation of violence against women and female poverty/Pandemija dovela do eskalacije nasilja nad ženama i ženskog siromaštva

In the period from October 2020 to March 2021, SOS Niksic together with the partner organization Womens Safe House Podgorica,  conducted a research with the aim of determining how Covid 19 affected the lives of women with experience of violence, what are their key needs during a pandemic and which is the best way to answer them.

The study included 52 women survivors of domestic partner violence who during the pandemic were benegiciaries of specialized help and support services of SOS Hotline Nikšić and WSHPodgorica.

– The techniques used during research were focus groups and individual and group interviews. With the aim of gaining a better insight into the treatment of institutions towards women survivors of violence and domestic violence, an analysis of 60 cases was made. Analysis included cases of women who applied for support and help in the period from October 2020 to March 2021. to the SOS Hotline Niksic  and WSH Podgorica.

When it comes to analysis, the following indicators were monitored: prevalence of violence, availability of institutions, multidisciplinary response, gender sensitivity, security planning. The key conclusion is that the pandemic has led to an escalation of violence against women and female poverty.

The pandemic generally changed the lives of all citizens and the home was not a safe place for all women. The survey found that one in four women who accesed to the organizations for help reported the same to the institutions.

Additionaly, research has shown that women’s unpaid work has doubled. When it comes to health care, women said that help was available only for women with visible bodily injuries and there was no help for other types of violence.

U periodu od oktobra 2020. do marta 2021. godine, SOS Nikšić je zajedno sa partnerskom organizacijom Sigurna ženska kuća Podgorica sproveo istraživanje sa ciljem da utvrdi kako je Covid 19 uticao na živote žena sa iskustvom nasilja, koje su njihove ključne potrebe tokom pandemije i koji je najbolji način da se na njih odgovori.

Studija je obuhvatila 52 žene koje su preživele nasilje u partnerskim odnosima u porodici koje su tokom pandemije bile korisnice specijalizovanih službi za pomoć i podršku SOS telefona Nikšić i SŽK Podgorica.

– Tehnike korišćene tokom istraživanja bile su fokus grupe i individualni i grupni intervjui. Sa ciljem da se stekne bolji uvid u tretman institucija prema ženama koje su preživjele nasilje i porodično nasilje, urađena je analiza 60 slučajeva. Analiza je obuhvatila slučajeve žena koje su se prijavile za podršku i pomoć u periodu od oktobra 2020. do marta 2021. godine SOS telefonu Nikšić i SŽK Podgorica.

Kada je reč o analizi, praćeni su sledeći indikatori: rasprostranjenost nasilja, dostupnost institucija, multidisciplinarni odgovor, rodna osjetljivost, planiranje bezbijednosti. Ključni zaključak je da je pandemija dovela do eskalacije nasilja nad ženama i ženskog siromaštva.

Pandemija je generalno promijenila živote svih građana i dom nije bio sigurno mjesto za sve žene. Istraživanje je pokazalo da je svaka četvrta žena koja je organizacijama zatražila pomoć isto to prijavila institucijama.

Pored toga, istraživanje je pokazalo da se neplaćeni rad žena udvostručio. Što se tiče zdravstvene zaštite, žene su rekle da je pomoć bila dostupna samo ženama sa vidljivim tjelesnim povredama, ali ne i za druge vrste nasilja.
