Domestic Violence Against Women

Ravina Raj, BA LL.B, School of Law, NMIMS, Hyderabad


According to the United Nations, violence against women includes any act of gender-based violence that causes or is likely to cause bodily, sexual, or mental pain or suffering to women, as well as threats of such actions, coercion, or arbitrary deprivation of liberty in public or private life. Domestic violence occurs on a daily basis in families all around the world. Women's discrimination may be traced back to ancient cultures. Domestic violence, which is defined as the physical, mental, and/or sexual abuse of women by intimate partners or ex-partners, is the most common type of violence against women worldwide. In India, women are subjected to violence as a result of cultural norms and economic dependence. Despite the fact that female participation in public life is growing and legislation are being passed.
