Delegate Phan Thi My Dung acknowledged: “When coming home, the husband is silent all the time, or he doesn’t criticize his wife, but all day he keeps praising his neighbors for being attentive, beautiful, rich, or angry at the fish, that is. They don’t take action against the person being abused, but every time they beat a dog, hit a cat, etc., in the long run, the affected member will have a psychological crisis.”
The opinion of Representative Phan Thi My Dung has created a wave of discussion on social networks. Accordingly, one account said: “To be fair, every time I’m complimented by my sisters for being handsome and stylish… I’m sure I’m being harassed. Thank you delegates!”.

In addition, the expert also recommended focusing on solutions to prevent and handle domestic violence.
“Abandon reconciliation, force the abuser to temporarily leave the place of residence, not the victim, to take refuge. Strengthen the role of emergency handling for the police. Specifically, the police must be the one to issue the ban on contact, not the People’s Committee. The police are the only place to receive reports of violence, not the current 6-7 parties… The police must be present immediately to stop the violence case immediately, then the role of the health and social organizations will be. women”, emphasized Dr. Khuat Thu Hong.
