You must really be living in some paculiar place. Sexual harrassment of women is commonplace in all societies, at all levels, as is domestic abuse. Outright war can lead to rape as a weapon of war, e.g., Bosnia, Darfur, etc...,or as a perceived right to punish the conquered enemy, Soviet roops at the close of WWII, or even as a right of reward for liberating victims, once again, Soviet troops. As for sexual scandals, there had been a number of them in the UK, and I am not even including the royals. France does not frown so much on sexual misconduct. Mitterand had seduced his friend's seventeen year old daughter and started a second family with her. Sexual harrassment is a given in Russia and eastern European countries.
