Contd..
• Independence, Empowerment and divorce for a woman are taboos.
• The GBV survivors are trapped in socio-cultural norms and
practices
• As a survivor she is abused twice – once by the spouse and other
to whom she turns for help – including persons from law
enforcement agencies, judiciary, community etc.
• Lack of integration of GBV services in healthcare programs, Weak
legal support system and unreliable shelters are some of the
serious challenges faced by survivors as well as by the service
providers in their efforts to assist these survivors.
