Men wearing skirts take part in a protest against domestic violence, in central Istanbul, February 21, 2015. Turkey's president on February 16, 2015, described violence against women as the "bleeding wound" of the country after a woman was stabbed and beaten to death after trying to fight off a man trying to rape her. Despite a surge in violence against women in Turkey last year, the particularly brutal, and public, attack on Ozgecan Aslan, 20, has become a rallying point, prompting protests and condemnation by politicians.

Mirkarimi, in a deal that would allow him to keep his badge and gun, pleaded guilty on March 12, 2012 to a lesser misdemeanor charge in the spousal-abuse case linked to a New Year's Eve quarrel with his estranged wife. But in a sign that the political future of the city's first new sheriff in three decades may still be in question, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said he was meeting with the city attorney to decide whether to seek Mirkarimi's ouster on grounds that the sheriff had committed official misconduct.

According to Venezuela's Attorney General Luisa Ortega, last year the justice system received more than 96,000 complaints of domestic violence with over 54,000 criminal prosecutions. These figures contrast with the relative indifference of Venezuela's society to domestic violence, in a country better known for its many beauty queens and women in high positions than for its statistics on aggression against women.

A victim of domestic violence shows her head wound patched up with tape in a women's shelter in Papua New Guinea's capital city of Port Moresby October 27, 2005. Port Moresby has been rated the worst city in the world to live, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit. Moresby's only saving grace -- Baghdad was not included in the survey. So far this year there have been 114 murders, but only 23 arrests, and 151 rapes, and only 30 arrests. There have also been 577 robberies, 671 car thefts, 377 break-ins, 317 assaults and 28 abductions, according to police statistics. Picture taken October 27, 2005.
