Indonesia has just conducted its first ever national survey on domestic violence. It found that 41% of women had experienced some form of domestic abuse. We hear about the work of a pioneering crisis and counselling centre offering holistic support, the first organisation of its kind in Indonesia.
In Behind Closed Doors Claire Bolderson reports from three different countries: Kenya, Peru and Indonesia.
