Until a few years ago, violence against women in Sweden was almost a hidden subject even in a country often rated number one when it comes to gender equality.

And violence is on the rise. Every three weeks a woman is Sweden is killed by a man close to her. Last year, the police said a total of 35 thousand cases of violence were reported.

Euronews went to Sweden and spoke not only with survivors of domestic violence but with one of the journalists behind a project called “Cause of Death Woman”.
