Indian women give drunk hubbies the chop - India
New Delhi - A group of 93 women from New Delhi's sprawling slums have received martial arts training to tackle their drunk husbands, it was reported on Friday.

One woman said her husband would come home drunk every night and then physically abuse her.

"He was shocked when I punched him back in the stomach. He has mended his ways since and even apologised to me the next morning for the first time in our married life," she told the United News of India news agency.

Social workers say alcoholism is a problem in slum areas. Most of the men are unemployed and spend their wives' earnings on liquor.

(This sounds like the U.S.!)
