Sociocultural And Legal Aspects Of Violence Against Men

Meghna Nauhal, Student, LLM, Law College Dehradun, Uttaranchal University


Domestic abuse is always brought up in the context of women. The culprit is always thought to be a man. Domestic violence, however, is no longer restricted to women due to recent socioeconomic developments influencing family structures. Men are also subjected to verbal, physical, emotional, psychological, and sexual abuse. Men are silent victims of these harmful acts since they do not report them. Because our culture's laws favour women as victims of abuse, these unfortunate males are denied justice for their deplorable situation in the family and society.

This article aims to investigate the scope of the problem as well as its sources and consequences. There is a demand for gender-neutral domestic abuse legislation. Spousal violence should be classified as domestic violence.
