Domestic Violence Law Not Protecting Women in Tunisia | Human Right Watch

In 2017, the government of Tunisia passed Law 58, a progressive law to protect women from domestic violence. Five years later, Human Rights Watch interviewed over 100 individuals including 30 survivors of violence against women, police officers, judges, lawyers, staff of nongovernmental organizations, and other individuals providing services to survivors. Our research found that five years after the adoption of the law, state officials, including police officers, judges and lawyers who are supposed to be at the forefront of the law’s implementation, still harbored dismissive attitudes toward survivors. Too often, survivors are discouraged from going further with their complaints. There are also not enough support services to help women escape domestic violence.
