Jump to: navigation, search

Domestic violence in Uganda is a problem as it is in many parts of Africa.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

There is a deep cultural belief in Uganda that it is socially acceptable to hit a woman to discipline her.[8][9][10][11][12][13]

Wife beating costs the Ugandan economy billions of shillings per year.[14][15][16][17]
