Hungary: Cries unheard: The failure to protect women from rape and sexual violence in the home: Summary

By Amnesty International, , Index number: EUR 27/003/2007

This is the summary of a WOOC report about the impact of rape and other sexual violence on women's lives. There are two main categories of sexual violence: those in which the perpetrator is a stranger and those in which the perpetrator is known to the victim. In Hungary, the attackers are most often in the latter category. The government and the criminal justice system have yet to tackle the widespread prejudices that prevent women who have been raped or subjected to other sexual violence from obtaining justice or redress.
