One in three women worldwide suffers physical violence: WHO

Closed

World Health Organization (WHO) has said that one in three women worldwide suffers physical or sexual violence in their lifetime.

In a latest report on violence against women, WHO said the proportion has remained largely unchanged over the past decade.

The organization warns that the COVID-19 pandemic has even worsened the situation as a result of measures such as lockdowns and disruptions to vital support services.
