Preface

Violence against women is a violation of dignity, safety and human rights. The problem is immense, particularly domestic violence, but also violence against women in conflict situations and against victims of human trafficking. Yet it is often seen as a private matter, something that goes on behind closed doors. It is not: it is a crime. And the state has a responsibility to protect the victims.
