Violence against women and children is a global problem, but in Lebanon it must be tackled in a culturally specific way.The unspeakably horrific case Sunday of a 5-year-old Syrian refugee raped and murdered, his body left in a dumpster, is just the latest example of such acts and follows the murders of several women this year, all at the hands of partners or men close to them.
