It is often heard among people responsible for the prevention of gender-based violence and the public, that gender-based violence occurs between stable partners. This hoax hides the enormous rate of gender-based violence in sporadic relationships. This idea makes it difficult in educational settings to develop prevention programmes on gender violence from an early age.
For example, in a survey conducted in the US, approximately 81% of mothers and fathers of teenagers in the US believe that dating violence is not a problem or admit that they do not know if it is a problem.
