Madrid (EFE) force your partner to have sex.
It is one of the outstanding data from the survey on sexual violence against women made public this Wednesday by the Center for Sociological Research, which does not ask about the controversial law of only yes is yes.
According to this survey, there is no doubt about the need to legally pursue chemical submission, but 20% believe that forcing a partner, although unacceptable, should not be punished; 49% feel the same about “unwanted comments and suggestions of a sexual nature to a woman” and 28%, about “kissing a woman against her will.”
The division regarding prostitution is complete: 28% consider it acceptable to pay a woman for having sexual relations; 33% see it as unacceptable, but legal; and another 32% would punish him legally.
fear of reporting
75% of Spaniards believe that victims of sexual assault report them rarely or almost never, mainly out of fear of the aggressor, but also out of shame and fear of not being believed.
47% also believe that the victim does not report immediately, but rather waits for some time.
According to the survey, 58.5% believe that inequalities between men and women in Spain continue to be great, although the majority (68%) believe that they are less than ten years ago.
Women perceive more inequalities and are also less optimistic than men when analyzing progress.
News about sexual assaults have increased in recent times, but most believe that it is because more cases are coming to light and only 26.7% believe that more are occurring.
According to this survey, behind sexual assaults on women there are “mental problems”, “lack of education, lack of principles and values”, as well as a feeling of “superiority, power and rights”.
The home and places of nightlife, parties and festivals compete as places where women suffer the most sexual assaults.
Nearly 74% of those surveyed believe that digital sexual violence is quite or very widespread on the networks.
The vast majority of those surveyed (97.5%) believe that blackmailing a person by disseminating photographs or videos of a sexual nature is unacceptable and must be punished by law, as is sharing images of a sexual nature without consent or pressuring someone to send nude photos of themselves.
80.6% also believe that sending messages with unwanted sexual content should be legally prosecuted, but there is more disparity when asked about offensive or embarrassing comments on the internet or/jlgedes about someone: the vast majority see it as unacceptable, but only 44% believe that it should be punished by law.
Harassment and sexual violence at work
There is little doubt that certain behaviors are sexual harassment, such as pressure to obtain sexual favors in exchange for job improvements or under threat of dismissal, unwanted touching, pinching and cornering, or hugging and kissing.
But 46.7% do not see harassment in jokes or insulting jokes about women in general; 22% when a woman is asked private questions about her sexual life, and 21% also do not believe that there is harassment when sexual relations are repeatedly requested without pressure or threats.
