After the collapse of the Soviet Union Tajikistan has seen a trend toward the reinforcement of traditional family values. According to Andrea Strasser-Camagni, Amnesty Internationals Tajikistan expert, these values see women treated as servants, or as the in-laws family property and lead to tragic outcomes, including suicide as a way of escape.
Featuring interviews with survivors of domestic violence and womens rights activists, the video explores the physical, psychological and sexual abuse that women face at the hands of their husbands, partners and other family members.
