"I have talked to heads of police who grew up seeing their mothers
beaten by their fathers. Teachers beat kids, older siblings beat young
ones. Violence has been a way of life. Now they are coming to
understand this is not right. But changing deep-rooted practices with
cultural dimensions can take a long time, and requires sensitization,
awareness, respect – and economics."
