One in Five Hungarian Women Suffer Abuse

2018.11.26.

One in five women suffer abuse in Hungary, clinical psychologist Hajnalka Kalamár said on public television on Sunday, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Because it’s uncomfortable to share, many women don’t reveal they’ve been abused, thus the actual number could be much higher, Kalamár said on news channel M1.

One woman dies from abuse each week in Hungary, she noted.

November 25 has been designated International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women by the United Nations General Assembly.
