Hungarian Women Not Protected Against Sexual Abuse

According to Amnesty International, a combination of Hungarian law, the approach of authorities, and male attitudes toward women have resulted in failure to protect women against rape or sexual assaults. It claimed two-thirds of rape and sexual attacks are committed by males who know the women they are assaulting, and few victims actually ever report the attacks. Although rape within marriage has been a crime in Hungary for ten years, Amnesty International in its study found scant evidence that married women take advantage of the law when assaulted by their husbands.
