Exploring Violence Against Women

A worldwide survey conducted by CTI Solutions, LLC, reveals a disturbing epidemic of violence against women in virtually every country. It ranges from sexual mutilation not only in Africa, the Middle East, Far East, but North America as well. [1] It also includes widespread homicides against women (Femicides) in Latin America, which has one of the highest incidences of these attacks in the world. This includes many young girls forced to marry much older men.

Unfortunately, violence against women transcends cultural differences, since it occurs worldwide across regions and countries. The fact that it is pervasive around the world it does not make it any more acceptable or tolerable. The best way to deal with this scourge is to objectively document occurrences wherever it’s identified, compiled, fused, and analyzed. The resulting evidence will provide the best and most objective analysis.

Much of the research CTI Solutions, LLC is currently conducting is focused in Latin America particularly in the region known as the Northern Triangle (Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador). This is an area that serves as a gateway for drug trafficking from South to North America, but is also the source of high levels of human trafficking, including women and children, the point of origin for most of the violent gangs operating in North America. The area holds the record as one of the most violent in the world and holds the world record for homicides. While violence against women is factually and statistically verified, we have also found a strong correlation with violence against other vulnerable populations, such minors, and the physically and mentally handicapped.

Future post by CTI Solutions, LLC analytical staff will include additional details on these critical social problems.
