International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
Yesterday was the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women .
Women from several parts of the world continue to suffer abuses that often end in their death.
When I was studying Legal Medicine I was far from knew the horrible crimes that are committed against women, and the complexity of this matter.
When speaking with a person that I met, some while ago, about this I was also far from knew that there are still persons who truly believe that women are guilty, when they suffer abuses.
In Portugal domestic violence is now consider a public crime.
Despite this there are persons who prefer to ignore when they know or when they see a women suffering abuses. Because they are afraid or simply consider that is none of their business.
That´s why it is important to celebrate a Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
