    Thirty percent of women in the world will suffer violence from their partner or former partner at some time in their life. 8% of women will be sexually assaulted by their partner or by a man outside the relationship. And 38% of women killed are by their partners or former partners. WHO report on violence against women (“Global and regional estimates of violence against women: Prevalence and health effects of intimate partner violence and no-partner sexual violence”, 2013).

    UN Women. Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action-Beijing+5 Political Declaration and Outcome (Page 76, par.113) “The term “violence against women” means any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or private life. Accordingly, violence against women encompasses but is not limited to the following:

    (a) Physical, sexual and psychological violence occurring in the family, including battering, sexual abuse of female children in the household, dowry-related violence, marital rape, female genital mutilation and other traditional practices harmful to women, non-spousal violence and violence related to exploitation;

    (b) Physical, sexual and psychological violence occurring within the general community, including rape, sexual abuse, sexual harassment and intimidation at work, in educational institutions and elsewhere, trafficking in women and forced prostitution;

    (c) Physical, sexual and psychological violence perpetrated or condoned by the State, wherever it occurs.
