Why do some women experience more violence by husbands than others? (Viet Nam full report)

After the results of the National Study on Domestic Violence against Women in Viet Nam, conducted by the General Statistics Office (GSO) of Viet Nam, were launched in 2010, some available data from this study remained to be analyzed. In 2013, a secondary analysis of data from the National Study on Domestic Violence against Women in Viet Nam was conducted. This report should be seen as a supplement, or ‘Part 2’, of the report “Keeping silent is dying” - Results from the National Study on Domestic Violence against Women in Viet Nam. The study intends to shed some more light on the reasons why in the same cultural context, some women experience more violence by their husbands than do others. This understanding should help the government design more effective interventions and develop necessary policies to address VAW in a more comprehensive manner.
