Today Kazakhstan women from the rapist to save the family crisis centers. Each year, the centers provide legal, psychological aid and social support of 25 thousand women. About 4 thousand receive services shelters.
Women should be aware of the problem, not to put up
According to Zulfiya Baisakova, Chairman of the Board of oyul “Union of crisis centers of Kazakhstan”, they are trying to bring women to a new level of development.
“State centers allow a woman to be there for up to six months. But the work of the crisis center is not only the provision of housing. There is a range of programs. First of all the woman herself needs to find a way out of this situation, to reach a new level of development. After all
30% of women from the center back into the family in 12% of cases a relapse occurs
Now the crisis centers are developing standards work with the aggressors. This is very important to reduce the level of violence in our society.
The second point – the criminalization of domestic violence.
This does not mean they should all be put in jail. But that impunity leads to further violence
According to Biscovey, often the problem starts with the education of children in the family. If the father in the eyes of your child can hurt the mother, the child takes the format of relations.
“Today a rapist can only get 10 days of punishment in the jail and sit there on our money, the taxpayers’ money. Why do we spend money to contain it? Let him go sweep the streets or digging ditches.
The Alliance offers an alternative. If a person has committed a crime, he needs to attend courses to reduce the level of aggression and go through public works.
In extreme cases, it is necessary to apply criminal sanctions, depending on the severity of the crime, from one year to 15 years of imprisonment”.
In particular, the Alliance proposes to introduce new article of the Code the draft Law “On amendments and additions to some legislative acts of Kazakhstan on improvement of the criminal legislation”.
Here’s a revision of the intended changes or additions offer the business women’s Alliance:
