Russia's War on Women

Documentary in which Stacey Dooley travels to Russia to investigate the reasons for and the impact of the law that decriminalised certain forms of domestic violence.

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.

She meets the victims forced into hiding to escape their abusive partners and comes face to face with a prolific violent offender.

She visits the hardline orthodox Christians championing Russia's return to traditional values and spends time with the young feminists fighting for equality despite threats and intimidation.
