Wife Beatings Justified According to Women in Turkey
Somehow I'm not surprised by this. It just goes to show you that women are not always the innocents. For example, in the case of Rofayda Qaoud, it was her own mother who killed her for the "crime" of being raped and impregnated by her own brothers. In other examples, you hear of mothers dragging their little girls to be circumcised. In this case, the very victims of domestic violence feel they deserve to be beaten if they disagree with their husbands, burn a meal, neglect the children or refuse to have sex.
