An article written by David Smith in Johannesburg, explained the lawlessness and brutal conditions in South Africa that has been prevailed effectively. According to the survey made recently showed breath taking results about the brutal behavior of men towards women. Almost 1 of 3 South African men admitted to rape with a woman or a girl. More than 500 women and 400 men were questioned, of whom 90% were black and 10% white.

South Africa has one of highest rates of rape in the world. MRC “Medical Research Council” published the results for last year revealed that almost 30% of men in Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal provinces admitted having committed a rape, even 26% of women said they had been raped. Now a day percentage of committing rape has been increased to 39% in Gauteng the modest and richest province.

While conducting MRC Rachel Jewkes an expert said: : "We see a situation where the use of violence is so widespread that not only is it seen as being legitimate but I think quite often women forget it. They just see it as a normal effect." He further noticed almost 15% of women said that “in some rape cases, women want it to happen”.

Conclusion from the group that conducted the survey shows different set of attitudes reflecting men’s view that they are authorized for being violent and brutal against women. They think that women have to obey in any case as she made to do, and also women in many respects acquiescing to this.
