Save the Children developed the research "Attention to children victims of gender violence" whose objective is to analyze attention given by the Protection System for Women to children siblings of women victims of gender violence. Research findings indicate that professionals of police, social welfare and justice system believe that children are direct victims of gender violence and victims of psychological violence not only because of physical aggressions or as witness of aggressions, but because they experience violence in their diary home live. However, the research denounces also that the Protection System for Women has not created enough specific protection measures to cover children victims of gender violence, as well as their needs and participation in the decision making process for decisions going to concern them.
