Violence against women is an epidemic in the entire world and the victim can be a woman of any age. The most common form of violence is domestic violence that not only involves two individuals but it involves the whole family. The two people can either be male or female and even women who are educated and wealthy can face domestic violence at some point of their lives. Violence is most commonly inflicted by men as they have a feeling of superiority. There are a large number of women who are beaten by men, beaten to death and brutalized by men. Domestic violence never sees the religious, racial, educational and socio economic boundaries. It can either be learned or unlearned and thus it is very important for every woman to identify the different forms of abuse that they have to face in their day to day lives.
There are many programs for helping prevent violence against women so that it can change the rising statistics. Generally this domestic violence is caused due to reinforcement or learning rather than genetics or biology. This behavior is generally learned by observing the behavior of others. There are people who learns this behavior if they themselves have been subjected to this violence while other learns this behavior if they have witnessed someone abusing a woman in front of them. The reason why men become abusive is because they grow up in home where their father or even their step father was violent. A boy becomes aggressive because of his experience as a child.
Violence against women are found mostly in intimate relationship as it is considered as a social problem that is supported and condoned by the traditions and customs of a particular society. There are many video and internet games which show men to be more aggressive and dominant as compared to females which make them feel superior to women. Boys are mostly taught to be arrogant and irresponsible which has been increasing rapidly. It is considered as a medical problem that needs to be dealt with as men are becoming violent against women and it is very important to stop it. The reason of the violent behavior of men should assess rather than diagnosing and treating them with medications. They have been violent because they have been exposed and traumatized because of abuse and violence at home. Domestic violence has increased immensely because men consider it to be a solution to show their anger and there is no legal consequence of this violence.
