Stacey Dooley Investigates: Russia's War on Women
BBC Brit (DStv 120)
Behind closed doors, Russian society has a dark secret. It is estimated that thousands of Russian women are murdered every year by their husbands or partners.
Domestic violence is so deep-rooted in Russia there's even a well-known saying: "If he beats you, it means he loves you". Despite the scale of the problem, in February 2017 the Russian government decriminalised certain forms of domestic violence.
Stacey Dooley travels to Russia to explore the reasons behind this decision and the impact the change in the law is having on women.
