Why does Lebanese bill on domestic violence fail to tackle marital rape?

Why does Lebanese bill on domestic violence fail to tackle marital rape? | Social Media Slant 4 Good | Scoop.it
Long-awaited bill originally drafted to protect women from violence has, bizarrely, endorsed a 'marital right to intercourse', says Ellie Violet Bramley
Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com's insight:


"Domestic violence in Lebanon is widespread, suggest Human Rights Watch and a local NGO, Kafa, which means "enough" in Arabic. Kafa says analysis of media reports shows that 25 women were killed by family members between 2010 and 2013. But the real figure, according to the organisation's co-founder, Ghada Jabbour, is likely to be much higher as there are no national statistics on domestic violence."
