Dubai is advancing the rights of and protection for women and children every day, and a new initiative takes an important stance against domestic violence in a truly modern way.
While regionally, domestic violence is sometimes overlooked or brushed under the rug, a new online portal launched by Dubai Police allows victims or witnesses of domestic disputes to report them via a digital form.
Called the "Violence and Abuse Complaint," the form allows you to pick the victim (woman or child); the complaint type (options range from physical or verbal violence to custody disputes to sexual abuse to general maltreatment); your relation to the victim, and other general details about the issue at hand.
