    mso-bidi-font-family:”Times New Roman”””>As a result of such attitudes, it has traditionally been very difficult for women to report such abuses to the authorities. The fact that the police often dismiss domestic violence as a private issue rather than a criminal one has also been a huge impediment to women prosecuting their violent husbands. How can adult education be used to flush out this social cancer?
