Video: Tunisian rights groups offer solace to victims of violence against women
Date created : Latest update :

In an effort to tackle the problem, Tunisia’s parliament is currently debating a bill that would strengthen laws against gender-based violence.
But in the absence of any meaningful legislation, it has largely fallen to women’s rights groups to provide victims with support, whether it be a safe place to stay or legal aid.
