THREAD: Understanding the pervasive nature of domestic violence in the Maldives, the Domestic Violence Act of 2012, role of state institutions, the movements on the ground, and the need to realign and shifting focus for holistic solutions.

PS: Thread is quite long.
The ratification of the Domestic Violence Act (Act Number 3/2012) #DVAct, on 23rd of April 2012 was seen as a major step towards addressing the gaps in existence when it comes to establishing a results-oriented approach in domestic violence; esp. violence against women.
A study in 2007 carried out in the Maldives showed that statistics of violence against women follows pattern echoed largely across the globe; i.e. 1 in 3 women aged 15-49 have experienced physical and/or sexual violence at some point in their lives. Don't think much has changed.
