‘Violence in the domestic sphere was so ubiquitous, that when I asked women about it they laughed. They are subject to violence if their husband’s dinner is not ready, or not hot, or if some other person in the village made a negative comment about her to the husband. Sexual assaults by others were a fact of life to be borne.

This includes girls walking to school.  One comment to me was the girls that do go to school try to walk in groups, because if one dawdles, they can “be picked off, like a lion picking off its prey”.’ Cathy Burke, The Hunger Project Australia
