Turkish survey shows domestic violence OK
According to a survey published in the Turkish newspaper Hürriyet Daily News, a total of 34 percent of men find violence "occasionally necessary," while 28 percent said violence could be used to discipline women, according to a nationwide survey conducted among 3,500 men by the Happy Kids Association (Mutlu Çocuklar Derneği) and Kırıkkale University’s Application and Research Center for Women’s Problems.

The survey, which was intended to identify the perceptions of men and women regarding violence in Turkey, is the first of its kind conducted on men, not women, Dolunay Şenol, department chair for sociology at Kırıkkale University, told Anatolia news agency yesterday.

A total of 7,000 people participated in the “Nationwide Survey on Violence against Women,” in which men and women over the age of 18 were interviewed to identify their perceptions about violence against women. The survey was carried out in Adana, Ankara, Istanbul, İzmir, Erzurum, Trabzon and Malatya, and each city was represented by 500 men and women.

According to the survey, 34 percent of men said “violence is occasionally necessary” while 18 percent agreed with the statement “The man is the ruler of the house and is free to use violence when necessary.” Many men accept domestic violence when there is a “good enough reason,” it showed. According to some 30.9 percent of men, violence with a cause is acceptable, while 37.6 percent expressed that some principles such as honor, decency and discipline render violence necessary.
