​In Tunisia a new law for the defence of women

The Tunisian Government has proposed in parliament a law to combat physical and verbal violence against women. The text makes the penalties stricter for anyone found guilty of this crime in all the forms it may take. The executive’s proposal follows the publication in March of a report on women by the Centre for Research, Study, Documentation and Information (credif), according to which 53 per cent of Tunisian women have suffered violence in their lives.
