Domestic Violence Against Women in Bangladesh: ICDDR,B: Centre for 
Health and Population Research,  June 2006,  Qualitative research and a 
population based survey on 3,130 women of reproductive age (15-49 years) 
was conducted in urban and rural areas of Bangladesh to study the 
prevalence and consequences of domestic violence against women and their 
coping strategies. Sixty percent of women reported ever being physically 
or sexually abused during their lives. Their husbands were the most 
common perpetrator. Two-thirds of the abused women have never talked 
about their experience of violence and almost none accessed formal 
services for support. To address this major public health problem, the 
prevailing attitudes that permit and encourage male violence against 
women must be directly addressed. [Source: Population and Health

WOMEN & ADEQUATE HOUSING,  Report of the UN Special Rapporteur on 
Adequate Housing, to the United Nations 2005: The issue of access to 
land, property and right to inherit affects all women but is 
particularly significant in IDP situations which often result in women 
becoming widows and/or heads of household. In Rwanda, it is estimated 
that widows represent 50 per cent of all women, and 30 per cent of the 
claimants in land disputes. Their difficulty to inherit their husbands' 
property leaves them in precarious situations. Several studies confirm 
the link between the lack of secure tenure and violence against women or 
prostitution. A beaten woman will hesitate to leave her husband if she 
has no property and if she might be forced into prostitution to survive.
