Violence Against Women

The authorities in Baza are reporting a greater number of cases involving violence towards women this year, an increase of 20 per cent compared to 2009.

They do point out though that this owes more to a heightened awareness on the part of the women who are calling in. Less fear, perhaps, and also the simple knowledge that such a service – the Municipal Women’s Information Centre – exists to help them.

The true numbers of this crime will remain vague as many women are doubtful when it comes to reporting ill treatment, which is an awful shame as the men who abuse women do not deserve to get away with it.
