Today, in Ghana, a woman was beaten up by a spouse or family member. She is part of the 24% of women in Ghana who are victims of domestic violence, according to UN Women. She struggled past the obstacles of silencing, shaming and stigma, to report the violence to the police. She sought medical care, and at that point, she encountered yet another obstacle.
