Madagascar 'listening centres' encourage female victims of domestic abuse to speak out

Published
From a report, 65% of women in Madagascar, have reported experiencing some form of abuse (threats, beatings, rape, etc) but only 5% of cases end up in court.

Shame, social pressure, and plain ignorance of their rights are all reasons why the majority of Malagasy women who suffer from domestic abuse do not file a complaint.
