Chart on Domestic Violence

Hitting women

Mar 8th 2012, 16:33 by The Economist online

In much of the world, international women’s day is not much to celebrate

THE United Nations collects data on attitudes among women to domestic violence. The numbers are not drawn from the same surveys, so should be compared with that in mind. Also, some countries are not covered by these datasets.  Unfortunately attitudes to domestic violence in some of the missing places may be even worse than they are in Jordan, which comes top of this (non-comprehensive) list of bad places to be female today.

 

Percentage of women aged 15–49 who think that a husband/partner is justified in hitting or beating his wife/partner under certain circumstances
