abuse of women in France

"Every year in France, 223,000 women are physically or psychologically abused by their partners, according to the ministry of family affairs and women rights. In 2014 alone, it said, 134 women died as a result of violence by their husbands or partners, and five women killed their husbands because of it. Murielle Salmona, a psychiatrist who specializes in trauma, said that the women usually reacted when they reached a “breaking point” after years or even decades of abuse."
