The World Health Organisation has released some shocking figures which do not surprise us in the family violence sector, of the high incidence of domestic violence across the globe, and the high impact of it on women and women's health and their children.

The highest scale of abuse is recorded in Asia, then Africa, Middle East, Sub Saharan Africa and even developed countries like New Zealand record an average of 23% incidence of domestic violence! So what is the reason? taboos, system failings? Precisely what the WHO concludes. It blamed taboos that prevent victims from coming forward, failings in medical and justice systems, and norms that mean men and women may see violence as acceptable.
