The fight against gender violence in France: an inside view\ In the 70s, a group of women starts in a French medium-sized town an association for fighting against conjugal violence towards women and manages a shelter for the victims. Many of these groups were created simultaneously in several towns, and they coordinate themselves in a movement, called Solidarité femmes. The local associations and the national federation obtain that conjugal violence towards women is better known and recognized, and they get some results in their fight. But conjugal violence is like an hydra, whose heads perpetually grow again, and the actual debates threaten to dilute its comprehension in new forms of commonplace treatment and deny.
