It can longer be ignored

This article in YNet (Yediot Achronot) brings word that Orthodox women are starting to report more and more spousal abuse to the authorities.

"The conspiracy of silence regarding violence against Orthodox women is slowly being broken, and we plan on helping them as best we can."

(There was also an article in Ha'aretz a few weeks ago discussing how there has been a similar increase in reports to the authorities in regards to child abuse.)
