Women Abused

Wow! This is rather incredulous. "Most women in Riyadh abused - study." Short article, though, for such serious subject matter. "According to a survey of women in Riyadh, 95 percent have been subjected for a form of physical or emotional abuse from within their family." How were the 80 women who were interviewed about their family life chosen? Seems like a relatively small handful of women, considering the population... Were the 80 women that were interviewed at a women's shelter or something? 95% of 80 women. Something is not right about this study. Not saying that the women were not abused - they probably were - but wouldn't a much larger number of women be needed to truly give an accurate picture of abuse in this - or any - society?
