But today, they are the most targeted and affected ones when it comes to violence and crime and are no longer safe anywhere even in their own home or around their loved ones, especially their partners.

Women are the worst victims of violence. In addition to all this, violence against women by their own intimate partners has considerably increased at a mushrooming growth all over the world, said a report by World Health Organization (WHO).
