Posted on

On this November 25, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Madame Rap has selected 25 female rappers from 25 countries who are fighting against violence against women.

From Kenya to Guatemala, via Germany and Indonesia, these artists, whether they call themselves feminists or not, are speaking out against sexist discrimination through their lyrics, their public statements, or as part of other projects.

Globally, 736 million women (almost 1 in 3) have been subjected to physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence, non-partner sexual violence, or both at least once in their life. Most violence against women is perpetrated by current or former husbands or intimate partners (World Health Organization, 2021).

In Europe, 2 in 10 women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by a partner or a friend. 3 in 10 by a relative or family. 10 in 20 women have experienced sexual harassment (European Institute for Gender Equality, August 2023).

In France, domestic violence has increased by 15% in one year. There were 244,000 victims in 2022 ( 87% of whom were women). 89% of aggressors were men, and only 1 in 4 victims filed a complaint (Ministry of the Interior, November 2023).
