Women have always been considered as the weaker sex and maybe this is why, all kinds of oppressive behavior is meted out to them. Violence against women is not a rare things and every where around the world, they have had to face all sorts of violent behavior that even in this post modern era continues to shock and shame us.
In United Kingdom, many a case of violence against women has been reported that would frighten the daylights out of any man in this pseudo-civilized world that we claim to live in.
Almost 35% of the women have reported to have been assaulted sexually either by a close male partner or by someone they did not know. Even the girl child is not spared where over 20% of the women have claimed to have been a victim of sexual violence as a child.
