Slideshow

This is the story of our unique journey to ten countries, where we investigated the violence that kills and harms women.

Interview

“Have you got any children he knows aren’t his? Does he spy on you, or leave threatening messages?”

Interviews

“We won’t hide the girls away, they have nothing to be ashamed of and they have rights.”
“It is still the woman who is given the blame. People say it’s her responsibility to hold the family together.”
“It annoys me that people keep asking ‘Why doesn’t she leave?’ People seem to want to lay the blame on the woman, when the only valid question is - Why does he hit her?”
“The turning point was 2004, with the new law on violence in the home. Violence against women was no longer a private matter.”
