The laws that are in place to deal with domestic violence are inadequate and, most probably, not sufficiently enforced--ending this kind of abusive behavior requires educational initiatives at the high school level, and mental health treatment facilities to support the women who are threatened. Religious indoctrination is also partly to blame -- particularly where fundamentalist Catholic social activities are concerned. Lots of education and enlightenment, and social support needed. It's daunting, and it's a dismal prospect to deal with.
