% of Women Who Believe Domestic Violence is Sometimes Justified

The information used in this graphic comes from data assembled on the UNICEF site Child Info: Monitoring the Situation of Women and Children and collected between 2001 and 2007. The percentages above represent women aged 15–49 who responded that a husband or partner is justified in hitting or beating his wife under certain circumstances.
This is tragic. Any fraction of even 1% would be upsetting, but seeing countries with double digit percentages is heart breaking.
