Domestic violence has gradually been recognized as a social problem and an issue of human rights among Cambodian people but the prevention and action have been slowly taken toward this incident. Every day, a lot of Cambodian women are suffering from excruciating violence. According to a survey by Ministry of Women’s Affairs in 2009, 22.5% of married women experienced violence within their homes and up to 89% do not report the incident.
