if you were a female in the middle east and your family beat you if you told them you were raped, would you tell them, much less report it?
Not unless you're raving mad. Or cannot avoid it, like a male relative saw it and is out for revenge.

nor would I personally believe any rape statistics put out by ME governments - they have a history of major denial in regards to how their women are treated there, of how it appears to the world
What? You don't believe the Saudis when they tell us how happy their women are to to be locked away?
