Tajikistan: Violence is not just a family affair: Women face abuse in Tajikistan
Violence in the family is widespread in Tajikistan. This report reveals that women's rights are severely restricted in Tajikistan. The growing practice of unregistered, polygamous and early marriages means that wives often do not have the means or opportunity to access their rights, including upon divorce. Domestic violence often goes unreported. Girls' access to education is restricted through societal attitudes, and this limits their opportunities to escape the cycle of violence, discrimination and poverty. Amnesty international calls on the government to pass a law criminalizing domestic violence in Tajikistan.
