A new UN study attempts to quantify the prevalence of gang rape and other forms of violence against women in Asia - by talking with the men themselves. It reveals some startling statistics. Half of the 10,000 men surveyed in six Asia Pacific countries admitted they had abused their partners, and one in four had committed rape.
The study also showed alarming levels of gang rape, with some of the highest levels found in Cambodia. Of the men surveyed there, more than 5% said they’d taken part in a gang rape - higher than the 2% typically seen in most of the other sites surveyed.
