Ending female abuse in Jordan

Al Jazeera speaks to victims on International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women.

The head of the UN has called on men around the world to help end violence against women.

On the 10th International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Ban Ki -moon has unveiled a newly created ‘Network of Men’.

He wants prominent male leaders to act as role models to get more men to condemn violence against women, which takes place in many forms and in many countries around the world.

In Jordan, the UN says 43 per cent of women are victims of abuse.

Al Jazeera’s Nisreen el-Shamayleh met some of them.
