‘This is so wrong’: Hollande highlights domestic violence in French lockdown

The former French president François Hollande has spoken of his concern for women suffering domestic abuse during the lockdown.In an interview with the Guardian, Hollande called for schoolchildren to be taught that violence at home was unacceptable but that it affected every social group.

“In the past schools didn’t want to expose children to too many taboos, including the violence at the heart of the family. It was thought better not to talk about it even though we knew, tragically, it touched a number of children. But it is important to develop a programme at school to expose this,” he said.
