Summary "Austria is a country pioneering protection of women (95% of cases is male violence against wives or partners) with its ten year old Protection Against Violence Bill. In the words of one of its architects, ' shows men the red card.' Under the Law the police have the power to eject men from their homes which then become domestic sanctuaries for the women. In most other European countries it is the battered women who have to find sanctuary in a safe house." -- BBCWorld website
