    Domestic violence against women is a global issue worthy of attention and is not restricted to happening in a particular part of the world. The scourge surrounding this international issue is appalling:

    After surveying more than 10,000 men and 2,000 women, James Lang, the Programmes Director of Patterns for Prevention, stressed the significance of data validity for selected sites accross 6 pacific countries (China, Cambodia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Bangladesh).

    Shocking preliminary findings from his methodologies at the symposium on Gender-based Violence and Research held on the 9th of May in Beijing depicts that:

    • One in two men claimed to have used physical and sexual violence against an intimate partner,
    • One in four men reported to have raped a woman and
    • One in 25 men admitted to have participated in gang rape.”

    Over 6,743,000 women, which is about 1 in 3 women in Italy, report being a victim of domestic violence.

    Acid attacks on women is getting popular in Italy at the moment with the women's faces being the focal point of attack:

    “Lucia Annibali, 35, got attacked by 3 men who threw acid on her face, one of her eyes is destroyed and her ex-boyfriend Luca Varani is a suspect.

    Vana Del Col, 31, also had her arms and her buttocks burnt by two hooded men in her Vicenza appartment last Thursday, her ex-boyfriend who had served under 4 years for raping her in 2002, is a prime suspect.”

    In African countries like Nigeria, domestic violence is seen as a norm, due to the patriarchal sytem that obtains there. Although, recently some women have begun to talk abut this issue:

     “Mercy Nnadi was recently severly burnt with a pressing iron by her husband who also killed their son.
