One-third of women around the world have suffered domestic or sexual abuse. This statistic comes from a study by the World Health Organization.
Eric Mock says partners of the Slavic Gospel Association take time to teach against these practices when they encounter them around the former Soviet Union. Some live in places where women simply expect this kind of abuse. “What the churches are doing is they are helping people understand that there should never be violence in the home. They’re helping people understand from Genesis chapter two we realize that every man and woman are of equal value. There is never a time that a woman has a lesser value than a man. There’s never a time that a woman should be assaulted by a man and a man feel that it’s justified.”
