Reasons for the Domestic Violence : 

Violence against women can be in any form like your partner abuses you beat you and then apologize and say hurtful behaviour and this will not be repeated but you had a fear  he can repeat it again.  Domestic  violence  is also known a crime which occurs between people in a relationship  such as emotional, sexual and physical abuse and threats of abuse (Assaf and Chaban, 2013). Domestic violence is mostly used towards women. Domestic violence can only happen in  relationships. One experiencing domestic violence in a relationship with someone; Discourages or prevents one from working or going for some work.

Women’s are protected from domestic violence or prevention of domestic violence is as follows-

Legislation and Judicial Procedures:

Many of the effective measures are to be taken for resolving the issues and the problems related to the domestic violence, not in favour of the women for longer period of time.  With the help of some of the judicial and the legislative procedures, the government should take should take strict actions, for the prevention of its causes. Relatively it is hard for the victims of the domestic violence to stand against their husband’s face to face in the court (Coker, 2016). According to judicial procedures proper helpers should be provided who can support them, who will accompany with the victims during their court hearings. Many people who are suffering sometimes even don’t know their rights; Sometimes a person is injured or harmed so badly that she is not even in a condition to speak for them so law helps them.

Resources:

It is also seen that in some places government provide with the food shelter and enhance the availability and accessibility for the victims. And it has also seemed that professional training has been given for handling domestic violence must be strengthened.  It has been successful in many cases that injured persons are able to overcome these problems.

The Change of Ideology:

More than resources and judicial or legislative procedures, the change in ideology is most important. Governments have agreed that main reason is because of male stereotype and should be brought at the level of the criminal offence.

It can also be prevented through by the following steps:  service like specialist women and for the support or needs of service is required special NGO’s should be open to protect the women from male dominating gender – the Special attention should be given to the victims and specific groups women’s needs are to be addressed

Diversity and Non-Discrimination-

There should be no biasness and all the services should be provided equally.

Charge free and the fair acess:

There should be no charges free support should be given to victimsand  equally distributed across regions and cr proper shelter should be given for example the women help lines and shelters should be available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Human dignity, security and safety:

Services provided to victims ensures every possible requirement should be given and proper respect and dignity to be provided to victims (Dziedzic, 2009). In short, women should feel secure and respect should be given to them.

Confidentiality:

Proper respect should be given to women and person who is providing services should be informed in case of any problem.

Support

Proper support should be given to the victims they should be consoled with love, affection and caring nature.

Empowerment and Autonomy:

Services should be provided to the women who are being suffered from these kinds of issue and there children should also be provided with the moral support. And proper respect and dignity should be given to them.

Accountability and the Governance: The services provided to them are to be managed effectively on time and proper training should be given to staff to deal with such kind of victims

 A coordinate response – Service needs to work within a situation of the inter-agency cooperation, collaboration, and harmonized service delivery.

 Information to guard officer – Any of the person who had the reason for believing that the act of domestic violence is being suffered or  has been or is being or is going to be committed, may  information about it to the concerned officers.

 Duties of the service providers, police officers and the magistrate:  The law enforcement officer after receiving a complaint of the domestic violence should immediately take action against the cause of victim and should informed the family or near ones.

Duties of medical facilities- proper medical aid are to be given to the victims or the protection officer or a service provider for any service or help them need.

In these trained advocates provide support, information, referrals, safety planning, and crisis intervention in more than 170 languages to hundreds of thousands of domestic violence victims each year (Miller, 2006).  

The domestic violence prevention enhancements and leadership through alliances program- this solves the local problems that teach people ways to prevent violence.

Prevalence of Domestic Violence:

Through an survey it is assumed that 960,000 incidents of violence is between husband and wife per year and almost 2 3 million women are abused or tortured and become victims of domestic violence.

Among every fourth women every second women is tortured and beaten or abused badly by their in-laws for the lifetime. Again by the survey 1/3 of the American women (31%) according to the report are b physically or sexually abused and tortured by their husbands or boyfriends at some point in their lives. In every part of the world women are being assaulted or abused or beaten and according to survey almost 25 2 30% women are raped which is so shameful there are examples of many women who do not even feel safe in their families there are examples of women who are abused day and night in their families by their in-laws and elders which is very serious matter and has to be stopped by taking help forms laws, legal actions and by supporting women.

Conclusion:

Key Themes for Action-

 Equal and respectful relation between the men and the women and no discrimination on the basis of gender.

Proper norms should be made which can reduce the violence.

Educating more of the girl child and stopping people from discriminating between men and women.

Knowledge is power when it comes to doestic violence one should be given proper knowledge to prevent from getting injured.

Don’t compare abuse is abuse don’t get assaulted by your family inlaws husbands or boyfriends. One should fight against them and should take legal actions. And one should prepare a safety plan for safer side or to prevent themselves from getting being injured or assaulated. Society has changed but still there are many women who are facing problems and donot have enough knowledge how to deal with such person or family. Every women should support the another women instead of pointing or making fun.
