Summary
Documents recent efforts to combat domestic violence in Nicaragua, where it is estimated that 29% of women have suffered rape or other physical abuse by men. In 1993, the first special commissary, staffed by women police and women psychologists, was established to specifically handle crimes against women. Now there are 24 across the country. Interviews Ruben Reyes Jiron, founder of Asociación de Hombres Contra Violencia, a men's group that works with street gangs to reduce violence against women. Also interviews women who have been helped by Centro de Socho Atal, a Nicaraguan women's shelter
