A total of 1,833 women were raped in Bangladesh in 2021, with 1,047 of them being under the age of 18, according to the Human Rights Support Society (HRSS).

Among the rape survivors, 296 were gang-raped and 52 women were killed following the rape.

The number of incidents of violence may be higher as the data was compiled from the renowned newspapers, which also show that women are still suffering for not giving dowry, HRSS added.
