The problem of Domestic violence will not likely go away soon in Haiti. Unless many people in the society change their attitude, husband will continue to beat their wife for burning the food, arguing with him, going out without telling him, neglecting the children or refusing to have sex. This is what the Mortality, Morbidity and Utilization Survey (EMMUS-VI) revealed.
According to the report, the percentage of Haitian men aged 15-49 who think it is justified for a husband to beat his wife or partner is as follows:
15-19 years old: 15.2%
20-24 years old: 12.8%
25-29 years: 10.2%
30-34 years: 7.9%
35-39 years: 7.9%
40-44 years: 7.1%
45-49 years: 6.8%
For Haitian women aged 15-49 who think it is justified for a husband to beat his wife / partner, according to Mortality, Morbidity and Utilization Survey (EMMUS-VI):
15-19 years: 23.3%
20-24 years old: 14.9%
25-29 years: 15.1%
30-34 years old: 13.1%
35-39 years old: 13.8%
40-44 years old: 15.7%
45-49 years old: 16.1%
As far back as 1996, Haitian women, at the rate of 70%, have admitted to suffering some form of violence. Whether domestic violence or sexual abuse, Haiti's women are prone to abuse not just from spouses and loved ones, but also from authority figures, as in the cases found in IDP camps. But while the women are vocal about their struggles with abuse, men are largely unwilling to admit to inflicting this kind of suffering, so the numbers are decidedly unbalanced. Furthering the awesomeness of the reality, the men in this initial study were of the opinion that, at times, domestic violence or assault and battery was necessary and justifiable.
According to Dominican Police this happened late Saturday in village of La Victoria when Jean Lounis who is 37, got into an argument with Patricia Philomar, the mother of his 4-month-old daughter. As the mother ran away to call police, Jean Lounis took his frustration on their 4-month old innocent child in the home
A local mub reacted by killing the 37 year old Haitian Jean Lounis
This kid of behaviors will not help the Haitian community in the Dominican Republic, Instead it would reinforce the conception in the Dominican Republic that we, Haitians, are uncivilized.
An incident that took place over three Months ago. The sport announcer for Radio Television Caraibes, Ronald Vaval, opened fire on Alain Lamothe who allegedly had an affair with his wife. It was reported that Ronald Vaval found his wife with Alain Lamothe in an intimate position; something that obviously he couldn't take.
Do you think this is necessary?
There is a Haitian proverb that say: Kout Manchet nan Dlo Pa Gin Mak"
It was reported that Ronald Vaval had left Haiti following his act but somehow returned to Haiti. Does that make any sense?
