City’s rich battered wives screaming in silence
Rich city women are suffering in silence.
Yet inside they are screaming in agony from the violence meted on them by their partners, shocking statistics reveal.
And wealth is no barrier to abuse, a survey shows.
For they opt to keep quiet rather than suffer the shame of admitting they are being abused by reporting to police or aid organisations.
That is the sad reality, even though women suffering from rape, sex abuse and being battered do not get the justice they deserve.
Those who do complain suffer from skewed investigations, corruption and fear reprisals from their husbands and other family members.
