All this shows is that 800 thousand women deserved a good beating!!...
a silly comment on your part.
the factor that sets Poland apart from many other countries is the official attitude toward it.
very true. I find that a lot of people ignore it and the police stand on that is very unclear. How badly does one have to be beaten up to classify for abuse?
it's entirely possible for a relationship to include chronic and persistent 'low level' battery and still be legal in the eyes of the state,
The feeling of failure would be crushing considering the emphasis placed in the sanctity of "The Family" as a cornerstone of Polish society.
another good point.
I don't want to go too far off topic here but it's funny how all the concerned people who flock to the Jordanian-bashing thread on the basis of a murder are also disputing the facts about the institutionally-accepted violence going on on their own doorstep.
