One man out of every 100 husbands in Jordan is subjected to violence from his wife!

The Association of the Jordanian Women Solidarity Institute “Tadamon” said that Jordanian women still face challenges in the field of gender-based violence, and revealed that the results of the Population and Family Health Survey showed that 25.9% of wives aged between 15-49 years had experienced physical or sexual violence or emotional violence by their husbands, compared to 1.4% of husbands aged 15-59 years exposed to physical violence by their wives.

Solidarity indicates that out of every 100 wives, 26 wives were subjected to physical, sexual or emotional violence by their husbands. In contrast, out of every 100 husbands, almost one husband was subjected to physical violence by his wife, which calls for renouncing violence Against males and females alike, emphasizing that females are exposed to it more than males.

The results also showed that 62.5% of married women of the age group (15-19 years) agreed with at least one specific reason as a justification for their husbands slapping or hitting them.

This percentage is the highest among all other age groups for married women.

Note that the percentage for all age groups of wives is 46% and 69% of husbands.

Solidarity indicates that the survey identified 7 reasons for wives to justify beating or slapping their husbands, which are burning food, arguing with the husband, leaving the house without telling the husband, neglecting children, insulting the husband, disobeying the husband, and the wife's relationship with other men.

This came in the context of the global campaign of 16 days to combat violence against women, which began yesterday, globally, and runs from November 25 (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) to December 10 (International Human Rights Day).
