WHEN HOME IS HELL




The key to curbing wife-beating in a society is the firming of public opinion against it; police and courts can, at best, play a supportive role, says Mohinder Singh

On marriage, the weakest, the stupidest, the most insignificant man in the world receives a license to rape, beat. Virginia Woolf

THE recently released National Family Health Survey on wife-beating comes as a terrible disappointment About 56 per cent of the women interviewed supported the use of force to "discipline" wives in certain circumstances: suspected infidelity, showing disrespect to her in-laws, going out without telling her husband, neglecting house or children, or cooking food improperly.
