In the Martissant Slum in Port au Prince, like elsewhere in Haiti, many women are made victims of rape and domestic violence. The massive destruction of the earthquake has lead to further dislocation and insecurity and abuse of women. These Haitian women have little or no recourse either through their family or the law and the shame for this type of violence leads many women to hide and deal with the pain in isolation.
