There have been many crimes committed against the so-called weaker sex but none is more common than domestic violence against women. Perpetrators of the said violence are usually husbands or common-law partners of the victimized women. Countless women go through the painful process of domestic violence on a daily basis which makes it clear that help from a third party such as a charitable organization is required to rescue these women.
Records will show that women have been subjected to the most gruesome act of violence from the hands of their partners. Some of these include acid throwing during fits of jealousy, female genital mutilation for suspected infidelity, forced prostitution and human trafficking of women who initially believed they were being married for love, marital rape, and sexual slavery, among others. The list seem endless and more and more women are ending up as victims without any recourse for help.
Women in this situation should know that there are organizations which they can approach and ask help from. If it physically impossible to ask assistance themselves, they should find a way to get their message across through friends or relatives who can ask for help that will remove them from such a situation. People who know of women who are undergoing such cruelty are encouraged to report what they know especially if it is the only way to help these women.
Many women have already died, are carrying horrible deformities, or have totally lost their sanity because of being subjected to violence. It can be stopped but someone has to make it stop.
