The main objective of the Staunch Test is to highlight the excess of violence against women in cinema and television. So many movies and TV series talk about stories of kidnapping, stalking, rape and murder that audiences watch without question.

The Staunch Test team is also concerned about the impact that negative representations of women may have on our perceptions and treatment of women in real life, noting that research has long shown that the fictitious reality we consume on a daily basis has an influence on the way we perceive real life.
