Escalation of Violence against Women
The latest statistics compiled by female societies, which shelter
female victims of violence, indicated that all forms of violence
against women have increased recently. During the first half of
this year, the number of domestic violence incidents has reached
928 cases. According to the statistics, May 2010 witnessed the most
cases of domestic violence with a number of 153 cases. On the other
hand, according to new statistics, 10% of domestic violence cases
affect men who are abused by their wives physically and verbally.
Statistics also show that women are primarily subjected to physical
abuse more than any other form and that wives are the main victims
and then children.
