Domestic violence has long been a silent and growing threat to the livelihood of children and women across the kingdom. Statistics provided by the Royal Thai Police and the Friend of Women Foundation showed close male acquaintances and family members formed the majority of predators violating women’s rights. Those offenders committed unwanted harassment in physical, mental, verbal and sexual forms.
