Domestic violence

Domestic violence is not an isolated, individual event, but rather a pattern of perpetrator behaviors used against a survivor. The pattern consists of a variety of abusive acts, occurring in multiple episodes over the course of the relationship. Some episodes consist of a sustained attack with one tactic repeated many times (e.g., punching), combined with a variety of other tactics (such as name calling, threats, or attacks against property). Other episodes consist of a single act (e.g., a slap, a “certain look”). One tactic (e.g., physical assault) may be used infrequently, while other types of abuse (such as name calling or intimidating gestures) may be used daily.

Mariage des enfants

Le mariage d’enfants constitue une violation des droits de la personne. Malgré les lois qui l’interdisent, cette pratique reste courante, notamment à cause de la pauvreté et des inégalités entre les sexes qui perdurent. Dans les pays en développement, une fille sur trois est mariée avant l’âge de 18 ans ; une sur neuf, avant l’âge de 15 ans. Cette pratique menace la vie et la santé des filles et restreint leurs perspectives d’avenir. Les filles poussées à un mariage précoce tombent souvent enceintes alors qu’elles sont encore adolescentes, ce qui augmente le risque de complications lors de la grossesse ou de l’accouchement. Celles-ci sont l’une des principales causes de mortalité chez les adolescentes plus âgées dans les pays en développement.
