The Women's Wellbeing Survey (WWS, 2019), Sri Lanka's first national survey on women and girls found that 1 in 5 (20.4%) women in Sri Lanka have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. 1 in 4 (24.9%) women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by a partner or non-partner. 

Yet, close to half (49.3%) of the women who experienced sexual violence by a partner did not seek formal help anywhere.
