This is a serious obstacle for the social, scientific and cultural development of women which makes them more vulnerable; and only by reducing and controlling this issue, it is possible to think about women’s development, and then according to the main role of women in family and society, it is feasible to think about development of society. In this case, reasonable and thoughtful approaches should be considered as a proper criminal policy. One of these approaches is to remedy the deficient supportive role of law; and as a consequence to promote legal support - not only political support - for victimized women at the international level. In other words, one way to prevent and reduce the victimization of women is to provide protection for this vulnerable group outside their country.
