The lessons will be part of a new campaign to change people’s attitudes about violence towards women.
Details of the campaign, named the ‘Ending Violence Against Women and Domestic Abuse Bill’, will be published in a white paper in a bid to improve services for victims.
Communities Minister Carl Sergeant has said help for women who suffer abuse and violence in the home is seriously lacking.
In an Amnesty International survey, 22% of people said they thought a woman was partially responsible for being raped if she had numerous sexual partners.
In another survey, this time looking into the attitudes of people living in England and Wales, 14% of men and 19% of women thought it was acceptable for a man to slap his partner if she was nagging or moaning at him.
Officials say many cases of domestic abuse are swept under the carpet, and that health professionals need to ‘ask and act’ when they suspect a patient may be a victim of domestic abuse.
The new Welsh Bill will grant local councils and health boards power to assess what kind of services victims need in their areas.
It will also encourage services to collaborate and share information so those at risk can be identified and helped.
It is thought that domestic abuse costs public services £300 million a year, while £100 million is lost in economic output.
Mr Sergeant said: “I passionately believe we have a duty to tackle this issue and I believe this ground-breaking legislation – as outlined in the white paper – will help us take significant steps forward in achieving the aim of ending violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence in Wales.”
