Claire Bolderson reports on three countries' different and often inspiring solutions aimed at combatting domestic violence.

Unity is a village without men set up by Samburu women in response to domestic abuse. Claire Bolderson reports from three different countries: Peru, Indonesia and Kenya. The issue that unites them all is domestic violence. It is not that the problem is unique to these countries - the World Health Organisation estimates that one third of women worldwide suffer physical or sexual violence by a partner - but in each of the three countries, we hear about different and often inspiring solutions aimed at combatting it.

The series starts in northern Kenya where some Samburu women in a village called Unity have adopted a rather radical response to the abuse they have suffered – they set up a village without men.

Claire Bolderson reports on three countries' different and often inspiring solutions aimed at combatting domestic violence.

Rates of domestic violence in the Peruvian Andes are particularly high - nearly double the national average. The shocking case of violence against Arlette Contreras Bautista, was caught on hotel security cameras, led to calls for greater action against domestic violence. In August 2016, tens of thousands of people marched through the Peruvian capital, Lima to protest against the country’s shockingly high rates of violence against women. We hear how some inspiring women are working together to raise awareness about domestic violence and putting pressure on their government to act.
