Sami women are more exposed to partner violence than non-Sami women, according to a new study from UiT Norway’s Arctic University.

Of the women in the study, 17.6% of Sami women reported one or more types of partner violence, compared with around 11.8% of non-Sami women, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) writes.

According to statistics from the Crisis Center Secretariat, every fourth woman has been exposed to some form of violence or threats of violence in Norway.

According to the organization, men and women are equally exposed to partner violence, but women are exposed to the most serious and long-term violence.
